    Hi Mike, neither are original.

    The other award is not Luftwaffe either. Note the NSFK insignia to the bottom of the wreath. It is a glider badge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Sorry Mike,as Ade says they're both poor copies. Where do you manage to find so many fakes? Law of averages says eventually you'll find a genuine one. Stewy S

    Hi Mike, I would honestly advise you stick to buying from known reputable dealers who offer a meaningful money back guarantee.

    You are new to the hobby and until you build up your own knowledge you need to take care. That site is often used by the unscrupulous as a dumping ground for junk. The odds of you finding anything good, at any kind of bargain price there, are very slim indeed.

    You would be much better advised to buy some good reference books. This would be money well invested.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Thank you Adrian for your good advice. Yes I have recently bought a membership on niemanns archives so I can begin to judge by myself a bit But as you said, Im new in this so therefore Im very careful. Have already been fooled a couple of times by bad dealers so now Im much more careful with what I buy.

    You need to buy an annual membership to view Niemanns archives. I did once,but IMO,they don't help an awful lot. They're quite vague. Stewy S
