    From what I can see here, they're all fakes, the lot of 'em!

    A mix of fakes and fantasy pieces.

    (I presume the latter are the ones you have never seen before.)

    thanks for the response yep the guy propably havent heard about a thing called repros before and presumed all things with a swastika was from the era but there is so many alarm bells in these pics that i just had to post them so that people can see that fantasy piece makers even mix different branches like the sub through a cog wheel i mean, why even make something like that.

    cheers

    The sub through the cog wheel is not a fantasy. It is typically encountered as a stick pin for Submarine Dock workers. This particular piece in your photo however appears to be a reproduction.

    I can't seem to find this Kriegsmarine stick pin elsewhere - is it especially rare?

    Actually, that one is not a fantasy piece, but a copy of the Westwerftleistungsabzeichen awarded to wharf personnel at the Le Havre, Brest, St. Nazaire and Lorient U-Boat facilities.

    Bottom line being, whether outright fantasy or poor copy fakes, there is nothing in this group worth the metal they are made of. They are all bad.
