    Default Demjansk Shield

    My last pick up of the day.

    A nice clean Demjansk Shield with backing. I now have the Kuban and Demjansk. Need to start looking for the Krim, Narvik and maybe the Cholm to complete.

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Nice one. Don't forget Lappland shield. Although dubious, there are wartime POW made Lapps. Stewy

    Never a document/citation to support it though. You could include Lorient shield, some are deemed to be period. But again no legit citation to support it. Whereas Lapplands do. Stewy

    It's a type 4.5 by an unknown maker, these were all made from steel and hence magnetic. It was also the basis of the notorious fake "Serif J" shield that has caught out so many collectors over the years. Fortunately yours is a good one, and in a very nice collectible condition too.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned. As you know, it was not cheap but all in all, with the other awards I got, it all evened out.

    Thanks for your help.
