    Default Kriegsabzeichen Fur Hilfskreuzer( FO)

    Hello chaps , although the "finish" on this one has dulled right down because of in my opinion a period applied lacquer , I feel that this is a good original FO manufactured piece. It has the "ejector" marks as you would expect and catch and hinge set up that this producer used. What are your opinions on it fella's? Thanks in advance for your thoughts, Leon.

    Thanks for your conformations my "learned" friends , as I said I know this one is not in the best of order but I like the "patina" that it shows due to that "lacquer"! I guess that is not to every ones taste but I do like the passage of time/wear/use on a badge personally ,rather than a "minty" one. Thanks again boys, Leon.

    Cheers Gunny , it is on order! Personally I do not feel that the asking price of £225 is not unreasonable. It is in a solid order even if the finish has severely "browned" due to that lacquer. That said the lacquer looks to be period applied so it is a part of the history of this badge and as we know , these can go for silly money in that "minty" condition! Leon.

    I don't think the lacquer has spoiled it and for £225 you've fallen on your feet. Nice one mate!...

    Hi , it's arrived and although it's no longer "golden" I like this one a lot. I must admit for some reason I never thought I would own one of these so a "cheesy" grin is in order for me today! Leon.
