    Hello and welcome, thanks for posting your badges.

    János is correct, those three badges are fakes but the others are good. For more information about the pilots badge have a look at this thread: Friedrich Linden Pilots Badge.

    Thank you both so much for you help & welcoming!
    It is truly appreciated.
    Adrian, thank you also for the link.

    Sorry about the pictures, I'm hardly an expert photographer but some of the blame does need to go to the camera I chose.

    Unfortunately for me they must be sold, an old inheritance that would better serve an avid collector.

    Regarding the fakes, are they at least "quality" fakes, I mean is there much value to them? I am not going mislead anyone when trying to sell them (by pretending they aren't fakes), but I don't want to under or overprice them either.

    This has been quite the informative research project, I'm glad that I found such a great place to come for information.

    Respectfully,
    -greg

    Hi Greg,
    Values are always subjective as there are differing opinions on how much one would pay for a certain award but I can give you some ideas.
    The DRL Sports badge in bronze at top right I estimate at around €35.
    The General Assault badge, bottom right around €70.
    The Pilots badge at bottom left I think you could get around €350-€400.
    The fakes are unfortunately just that - fakes. They might have a small value as space fillers or for re-enactors to wear but realistically you won't get much for them, perhaps €20 per badge?
    I'm sure if I've been wildly inaccurate in my pricing someone will be along to correct me!
