I can comment on the button as this isn't the forum for that item but the Ostmedaille looks like a fine original in average condition for a zinc piece.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
As Adrian said a nice Ostmedaille but i can't comment on the button!....
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
thank you for replies!
medal ok,button no idea.
Both look good to me...
Yep, good pieces. Button has the typical crimp on the edges. NH
The medal looks fine to me i would say it is an early one, as for the button there was a unit formed from Ex-soldiers - paramilitary between the wars, ie the Weimar Republic. They had a buckle with the same helmet on it, hope this helps.
thanks again for all replies
