    Default I could use some help with Identification of items

    Hello, Sorry if this is the wrong thread...I have some items that I am selling for a widow of a WW2 US Vet. I usually sell and research items on Ebay , but I guess they don't allow items with certain symbols. So I was hoping some of you could help me with Identifying and perhaps some advice on how to sell the items and their value.The Big swastika is 44 inches across, I think they cut it out of a flag, but maybe one of you might know for sure , it is signed by us service people that the man who owned this served with, he stormed the beaches on D-day and he brought back these items along with a bayonet and a few other things that I put on Ebay..Any help would be greatly appreciated..Thanks

    Hi Markydee, welcome to the forum!

    The good news is that all are nice original items.

    I cannot help on values.

    But you have a gold wound badge in the first picture.

    The Heer (Army) shoulder strap is from the 69th Inf Regt. The next three cloth items are Heer rank insignia worn on the arm, together with a red Luftwaffe Flak collar tab with an incorrectly placed rank "gull". The metal badge is a tinnie rally badge, details of which are written on it.

    Next you have an Close Combat clasp in bronze, Police Long service medal, Infantry and Panzer assualt badges.

    Unissued Heer breast eagle, HJ membership pin, WHW donation pin, NSDAP membership badge.

    Unissued Hitler Youth sports shirt insignia.

    The swastika is indeed taken from part of a larger flag.

    Final item is a Hitler Youth armband.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Mark

    I agree with stewy...Reverse pics of the badges would help in identifying if they are indeed good ones and who the maker is.

    Hi Mark

    Your IAB is a Vienna Design, unknown maker referred to as a Pillow Crimp. I think it's bronze grade.

    The CCC is a bronze grade JFS

    The PAB looks to be a H. Aurich example. Can you post a pic with the pin folded back completely with your focus on the hinge?

    The Police I'm not sure of as I have not studied these.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Oops, forgot the wound badge...

    It's a '30' Hauptmunzamt Gold WB in tombak. Very nice condition.

    Congrats.
