    Those are excellent medals! My only concern is that I don't believe that those are period official engravings, but rather later engravings done by a jeweler. Regardless, an excellent acquisition

    Yes that can be true, perhaps he had done that after the war. It doesn't matter, it's still a nice set :-)

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks to everyone!
    I have one question which I don't like to ask. What is such a set worth? I think I know the price my parents paid, but I want to know where this set stands these days? I can't find anything on the internet.

    unfortunately, its a very sensitive question to ask on these forums. some feel that it takes away from the meaning of the hobby. others feel that it hinders people from doing their own research. i am actually not sure what a PH BS group would go for. nice medals by the way.
