    Default PABs in Bronze From Kurland

    Hi guys, just sharing my 3 new relic PABs found in Kurland. There were around 50 of them found together. Diggers in Kurland are frequently coming across such finds because the Inf. Div. 121 was undefeated until May 45 so they had to surrender at the last days of the war to the red army. Before they did so, they got rid of all their awards since they were afraid that soviets would punish greatly those who were decorated for their achievement against them. My friend Paul also found once during a digging trip in Latvia, many CCCs in the Kurland pocket (If you have any pics mate please post)


    The seller had 18 of this found hoard and i chose 3 of them which were in good condition (for relics).

    p.s. Thanks Juhan, you are the relic man

    Thanks Paul
    Here is the stash that Juhan has for sale.

    p.s. I had to watermark the pictures just in case someone wanted to use them in ebay, ioffer etc in order to scam people.

    All 3 are of an unknown maker, the AS in triangle is one of 3 different die designs they used, this being the second or type 3.3.2., the others being 3.3.1. and 3.3.3. The main difference is that all 3 have a different grass pattern than the others. This particular type is also the one that has the most pronounced scooped out reverse compared to the others, and is the only one with a 'flattened' ball hinge.

    The other 2 badges are known as the 'Juncker' type due to the rear set up being similar to that used by that maker on other combat badges. Both are the type 'B'; a slight variant on the type 'A' in that the headlights and coaxial MG design is slightly different. This could be because a new die was used or the type 'A' was reworked at some stage.

    3 real warhorses with historical provenance, that's cool!

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks for the replies guys.
    Ned that was a very informative post. Badges are not my main thing so i hadn't read before all those details regarding this maker. Thank you very much
