    I'm astonished at the prices these items fetched...

    Just a few more small bits from Mölders awards:

    Ritter €63,000
    Ritter Document €53,000
    Oaks €11,500
    Oaks and Swords €56,000
    Diamonds,Oaks and Swords €260,000
    Spanish Cross with Swords and Diamonds €115,000
    Award Document for Diamond Spanish Cross €34,000
    Diamond Pilot Badge €96,000

    Of course, keep in mind that these numbers are in Euros and also do Not include the 23% buyers fee....so, do the math, if you have a sturdy cardiac system....particularly on the diamond,oaks and swords bit.

    Take heart, though...not all the star pieces brought outrageous money. The box full of tomorrow's fake badge dies sold for a mere 8,400 Euros....and a Black 1944 Wound badge slipped by at a paltry 28,000 Euros...(plus the 23%, of course) And, for those feeling spendy, the Erhard Milch estate is still available for a mere 350,000 Euros...

    For the record, I'm making a prediction that soon-perhaps even within the year-, we'll be hearing of an "Amazing discovery" of a big bunch of absolutely unissued German badges,rings and pins being found in virtually Mint condition in an old box hidden in the dusty floorboards of an attic of an old abandoned German warehouse somewhere in Bavaria being found....

    Hello, Just to double check again, I took another look at the lot of dies in the wooden box just now before I came here, and it is sold(for 8,400E). It was lot # 5493 of the "German Orders and Collectibles 1919 onwards" online catalog. The dies were listed under the subcategory of "Third Reich Decorations" and were the final lot of 157 items in that listing. Sadly, if the buyer was from the West, this means that they ended up spending close to 15 Grand for the lot, so I would imagine they weren't buying it just for the fun of it, but, no doubt,intend to Do something with them...
