Need some information on authentic german medals, etc.

Article about: As others have said there is not a HUGE amount of money here, but if the items all turn out to be good condition etc, they will be worth a nice little sum, the EKII's usually go for \\$115-140

    These were all stripped from dead German soldiers/areas by my Great Uncle in the European theater. So they are all 100% authentic.

    Was just curious if you guys knew anything about these items and what they might be worth? Sorry for the crappy quality. Took them with my phone camera.

    Hello Bwayney and welcome to the forum. It would help if you can post the different items in the respective subforums, ie; flags in the flag forum headwear in the headwear forum etc.

    The EK2 is an original but to tell you the maker we need to see good, clear, straight on shots of the front and back. The same goes for the Kuban Schild.

    As for the other items, I can't comment as they are outside my area of interest but if you post them in the correct sub forums, the guys there will be able to help you.
    The Luftwaffe dagger in the bottom pic looks very wrong though.......

    Also, please be aware that there are many stories of XYZ being brought back from Europe by a family member. Unfortunately in some cases, these stories get exaggerated after each re-telling and things are not always as they first appear.
    The members here will appraise your items but will base their thoughts on the items, not the story.

    I know these for a fact to be authentic, but can i get away with not putting them into sub-categories just this one time ;].

    You already have!

    You might want to re-post the non decoration items in the other forums though because the members who specialise in headwear, daggers etc don't necessarily visit this one and may miss your pieces.

    Do you have any idea what the silver arrow nazi medal is called?

    It's a Hitler Youth badge I believe, quite common.

    Okay, I'm just trying to see if anything in the pictures is worth decent money. Does anything you see have potential to be good $$$?

    In a sense they could all be "good $$$" But, first things first, lets focus on clear, quality photos in the correct sub-forums, and it will all come together from there. Welcome to the forum!

    You're not going to retire on the value of these items. There is nothing worth a huge amount of money, the bayonet and caps maybe a couple of hundred dollars each if original.
    The EK2 would be worth around $120-$140 (I'm guessing you're in the U.S.?) depending on the maker and if it's marked.
