    Default Real or Fake, large collection I just purchased...

    Hello I am a dog-face infantryman with the 3rd ID and have a love of militaria even though I can't really afford to collect the things I do. I bought a few items and paid a reasonable price for them (alot for an enlisted man such as myself). Do they pass the smell test in your opinion? Please point out what are the flaws if any because I am trying to learn. Also want to know if I got taken... Thanks in advance!

    P.S. the left column is supposed "silver finish" as denoted on the sheet of paper.

    Some are pretty much considered fantasy items. All have soft details & poor hardware. Stewy

    There are some seriously uncommon badges you have shown and from this image I would be worried as this collection would cost a small fortune to purchase and in this hobby most of the time, the old saying, 'If it's too good to be true', then it probably ain't true.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Indeed, the partisan badge particularly. They were purchased from Poland, certificate of closure of private museum in Kowitz Selisa was provided as COA.

    I did pay a small fortune, thus my concern... as well all know enlisted infantrymen don't make the big $$$ haha.
