    Hi JBob

    Welcome to the forum and thanks for showing your items

    I can comment on your EK2 its a nice original cross made by Franz Petzl of Vienna.

    Your Wound badges look good too !

    The War Merit crosses look good to me, as does the first pattern police visor eagle.

    Hi and welcome to the forum!

    The screwback red enamelled cross is a Polish made fantasy item. The two eagles are good.

    Where possible it is always best to feature one item at a time. Makes things easier.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Agree with Ade on that one!

    Welcome to the forum and thank you for posting your items. The War Merit crosses are all good, the EK2 and 25 year Service Medal are also good. The Krimschild stands a chance too but it's in very poor condition.

    Hi JBob

    Welcome to the forum. I wont comment on everything but in my opinion

    Item 1) NSKOV (War wounded Assn.) cap eagle with 3 prongs is original tombac specimen but most of the silver finish on front worn

    Item 3) Reichparteitag Nurnberg 1933 looks to be aa original bronze specimen but pin may have been reattached

    Large coppery looking pin on eagle is a very good strike in cupal (copper top layer aluminum bottom layer) of summer uniform breast eagle worn by Heeres and Kriegmarine officers. One could mistake it for a gold specimen (Army generals and Navy officers) just from the front but, based on back picture this eagle was originally silver coloured (as worn by Army officers and Marine administrators (Beamte)) but the silver wash was worn off on the front (copper) side. Still, a very nice and crisp strike

    Like the guys before me , I'll leave a few items for other members to tune in

    Regards

    JC
