Are these any good?
Bumped into a guy the other day, and turned out he had German gear lying around for some years, and he asked me if I could tell him what they were, and if I could sell the items for him.
He has no clue what it is, only he picked them up years ago when based in Germany when in the military. Still waiting for a HJ dagger he forgot to bring by, so will post that as soon as I have it.
These items I got now are a;
HJ buckle, Overhoff & Co (I assume) M4/27
EK II, marked 65 on the ring (very short band)
Winterschlacht Im Osten medialle, marked 13 on the ring
HJ pin Mitglied Abzeichen M1/128 (Eugen Schmidhaussler)
Mothercross in bronze
Now for the two other items I'm not sure these are original. One is the SS Dienstauszeichnungen ans the Adolf Hitler pin.
The 4 year SS Auszeichnung seems a bit crude made, I think its a copy. What are your thoughts on it?
The Adolf Hitler pin looks alright, but its a M1/129 RZM, and that is often faked. Still looks alright under the loupe, but would like to hear it from the profs here.
What would this grouping be wurth, I know they are all realitive unexpensive pieces, but for the top 5 items I calculated 250 euros. Would that be more or less the value?
Thanks for any input, and if I need to make better pics, or post items apart please let me know.
I will sell the items that are okay, and return the items that are copy.

Hi, the SS 4 year is a bad fake
"In all my years as a soldier, I have never seen men fight so hard." - SS Obergruppenfuhrer Wilhelm Bittrich - Arnhem
Just as I thought Nick, cheers. So that's one down the drain. What about the Adolf Hitler pin? I cant see any red flags for the other pieces.
Etc etc etc.................
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
