Hi Doug, I have watched your thread from afar as I did not want to give you any "duff" opinions as I was unsure from the original images. That now said, your new pictures show this to be a beauty of an award. Well done on "sticking your neck out" and getting it! One day maybe I will be lucky enough to get one!! Leon.

Nice collection of Ostvolk kit Sarge. WE have corresponded in the past about Eastern Volunteer items. Thanks for posting.
As there are 3 variants of each grade of the second class awards if you ever get chance to do some HD pictures front and rear of the ones you have it would be appreciated if you could post them.
All the best
Thanks for your input Leon.
This was my 'holy grail' badge to get.
I just knew there must have been some out there in old vet collections but after many years none had come along.
I've had quite a few bundles of memorabilia from ex members of the Galacian division come my way but they never had the anti partisan badge in them.
At last...and it's a gold. Only the bronze and silver to get now
All the best
Made an group shot this year from my three Bandenkampfabzeichen. I like the comparing between similar variants and the similarities are good to see when you have an look side by side. Since i am a collector of Militaria stuff, i was interested in Bandenkampfabzeichen and over the years i could get this three badges.
