    I have a few things to post up for your critical review. I am not optimistic, but I'll embarrass myself nonetheless.



    For the first, I have a similar problem to Robert's. This beret surprised me with the wear and damage, as I suspected it would be fake. The badge and rank are fabricated right onto the beret, which is an origianl. Now, I know it is unlikely to be some general's beret, but it has been suggested that it may be a post-war veteran general's beret. What do you think?

    I have had this Warsaw Armoured for a while, but I look at it funny. The 1st Armoured I have always been suspicious of.

    I don't get involved too much with pre-39 badges. I cannot afford them, and unless they have some number or stamp, I just assume they are Panasiuk, unless they are not well-made (then they are just plain fakes). These are a couple of the few I have. Any thoughts? I appreciate this opportunity to show my possible blunders.

    I had a hard lesson in cloth badges early in my collecting, culling a bunch. I kept these two, although I am suspicious, especially of the printed one.

    I picked this one up sold as a Czech medal. The ribbon is the one that was on it, although I know it is wrong. I cannot find anywhere that may have a replacement. I know very little about this Chaplain's medal. Can anyone tell me anything about it, as well as what they think of it's originality?

    This is my only VM. The ring was seperated when I got it (held by a wire), so it is a replacement. I was told that this is probably a jeweler's copy for replacement. I am interested in hearing what anyone thinks.

    I was so happy when I got this, but I think it says "sucker" all over it. I see some very well-made copies on ebay now. Please tell me I am wrong.
    Please.....

    ...I would think you are right..and some sort of post war vet made one...Many vets kept on ..even to this day getting promotions..so it could be that this was a Captain or Major in the war..and after succesive promotions..got to be a general and had the beret made up...someone went to a lot of work.. any markings in the beret re the date and manufacturer?....

    Here are two orignal ones..one, an army beret with bullion work....quite different..and then what most generals used ..-.a metal rank insignia on the beret...this armoured one belonged to General Duch
