    Welcome to the forum and please post some photos, we'll comment on originality but we don't do valuations!..

    We are going to need close up pics, front and back, for each individual item.

    We have specialised sub forums for many of these items.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade is correct! The reverse of these items particularly can tell a story !

    You have an Eastern Front medal, Iron Cross 2nd Class, Wound Badge in black, an NSDAP party badge, an NSDAP eagle, a Panzer Badge in silver, a Reichsarbeitsdienst hat pin a car pennant (flag), and a Heer eagle. There's also a Wehrpass, which is basically identification. Nice plate, but I can't guarantee authenticity on any of these items.

    I'm no expert but I like the looks of a lot of them.

    Hello there,

    You need to provide good front and back photos of these items in order for anyone to tell you much. I have been after an Oktoberfest tinnie for some time so please let me know if you're looking to let it go!

    As mentioned, you will need to take good clear photos of the front and backs of each item and post them in the correct sub forums. Please note, this section is for orders and decorations only and as such, only four of your items will belong here. The other paper, cloth, china and headgear insignia etc have other sub forums to post in.
