    Looks like the eagle is a USAF officers hat badge. The old ones that made you look like a bus driver. Not knowledgable with the rest.

    Quite often, poor quality pictures are hiding something. Be wary, and ask for more photographs. If they aren't forthcoming, leave well alone. One needs to be able to make an informed decision, so be careful Lowboy.

    These are scans which are never a good way of obtaining images of awards because as can be seen, only the highest points come out in focus. Please ask the seller for some photographs, not scans so we can see what we have here.
    The Westwall, Krim and KVK all stand a decent chance and possibly the Destroyer too but we would all like better images of these pieces.
    It may seem a bit pedantic to keep asking for better images but there is a reason other than the obvious one. If we get into the habit of identifying pieces and authenticating them from blurred pics it will set a precedent to future posters not to make a bit of an effort with their photography and we'll end up having a forum full of poor quality photos and we like sharp pics for reference.
    Also, if we give a positive authentication based upon pics such as above, a member makes a purchase based upon this and then the pieces turn out to be fake, can't get their money back etc etc.........
    For credible answers we need credible photos!
