    Hmm, i have never seen the first one before, it reminds me of a Bomber claps, but it shouldn't have crossed swords then. The second one is original(I think). And the third one, is a civil work badge for the luftwaffe, i haven't seen that these have been faked before, but the back looks odd to me.
    Best Regards

    The crossed swords badge is a Luftwaffe ground attack badge (It's photographed upside down)
    The wings with swastika appears to be some sort of DV badge, and the skull is a skull early SS or panzer.
    As to originality................... I can't say , but the skull may have a good chance

    LGA badges are pretty scarce

    The clasp was awarded for Luftwaffe air to ground support i.e tank busting. It was instituted quite late in the war as the Russians were on the major advance. As for authenticity, it has a chance, I like the age tones to it and the detailing is correct. Its difficult to say as there are not alot of these around and they fetch a high price, so are often faked.

    The pin badge is a NSFK/Luftwaffe flying association membership pin badge. I have the stickpin version of this. Yours is very tarnished.

    As for the Panzer SS skull, I don't know enough about these to make a judgement.

    Bill, is the clasp marked Osang Dresden?

    Yes - Osang Dresden is stamped but there also appears to be two characters prior to Osang that I do not recognize. A mark maybe?

    G.H. Osang Dresden.I personally like the clasp, but I am not an expert on these and better pictures are needed.

    I would go along with this too. I can't comment on the other two items but I'm liking the clasp based upon the photo provided. Look forward to seeing the reverse.
