Michael, the images don't really show the pieces in any great detail but I can tell from what is shown that you have some fine examples of period stamp markers. What the images do show are some of the variations of form that the markers were also produced in. There are, as you probably know, many such variations, not just the regular sized round headed pieces either. Over the years, I have had quite a few different variations myself including some very interesting and rare pieces but as you rightly say, this is a very dangergous area with many people falling foul of a reproduction example, some of which I have seen sell for a lot of money.
Well done on acquiring some genuine examples and thank you for sharing.

updated information regarding wording on the stampers
Ok guys, so an update with some of the wording on the stamps:
OBERKOMMANDO DER KRIEGSMARINE (third stamp in 4th photo)
KRIEGSMARINE - KDO.2.ABTEILUNG MARINESCHULE MÜRWIK, this is the exact wording used on both the ink and wax round headed stamps (1st and 2nd stamps in 4th photo)
Dienstelle feldpost nummer 16244C (7th stamp in 4th photo)
bau-berufs-genossenschaft (4th wax stamp in the 4th photo)
u-boat 148 (8th stamp in the 4th photo)
Im in the process of trying to work out the two corroded ones which are proving difficult!!
it is kinda "weird" to reply to an old thread, but there are two for sale at germanwarbooty.com
