    Sorry but all of them look like they are reproductions to me. The one Luftwaffe pin looks like a fantasy pin to me

    Many look like they were made from the same metal - a bad sign. The reverse of many have lots of pock marks and generally a poor finish. The EK II looks particularly poor. The bags are usually a much darker blue. For this and many other reasons this is a lot to avoid. NH

    Sorry buddy. Well, at least they can be used as missing piece fillers until you get originals. They could also work on reproduction uniforms for re-enacting if you are involved in the hobby. NH

    Some times a risk pay off but in this case it did not in the future try and post something on here that you are not sure of. I always put something on here if I am not sure. Better to be safe then sorry with German military

    Wow....not a good bet on any of this lot! About the only one that might come the closest, would be the Olympics medal, and unless we could see some Way clearer and closer photos of it, I wouldn't put much hope on it either. Sorry....

    (Good lordy, look at the swastika on that U-Boat clasp!!....brrr...)

    As previously stated, all of them look to be bad, exept maybe the 36 Olympics medal .If it was from a different guy then the others it might stand a chance.

    Luckily this is an easy one as they are bad and not much discussion is to be had about them.

    I've closed the thread and will draw your attention to the sticky thread at the top of the main orders and decorations page about posting photos and multiple items.
