    Hi Massimo,

    These boxes are considered to be originals, and were generic for Panzerkampf Abzeichen's, GAB's and Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's.

    These Kriegsmarine ones are also considered good. The plain purple/blue ones are specifically associated with the manufacturer Schwerin. I think Nick posted one similar recently.

    Here's an example of a horde find of Aurich Panzerkampf Abzeichen's in plain cardboard boxes, these were often changed by the jeweller selling the piece to a more flashy type as seen on some of the above, but this was not always the case.(No pun intended!)

    Finally, here's an example of a fake box. These have been flooding the market for 4 or 5 years now, so beware. They are also printed for GAB's and Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's.

    The current going price for a box alone is around $80 to $100, although you can often pick up an award and case together where the total price makes the box a lot cheaper than if bought separately.

    Thanks for the kind words guys, but I have to admit to having shamelessly filched all the above images from across the net and apologise unreservedly to those to who they belong......a bit.
