He fought on the Western Front, Victory on Germany, Berlin, Warsaw .
Note these are two sets of bars almost similar to each other - no way one man has been awarded twice.
As to shoulder boards -Navy technical service captain-lieutenant.
I understand these things, I'm just trying to figure out if these items go together. Obviously the cockade and the shoulder boards have the potential to be one group but what about the two medal bars? If the medals on them are indeed the Berlin medal and Warsaw medal then why would a navy officer have been awarded those? Is it possible for these medals to be awarded to navy personnel?
I would not waste your time with this lot unless it was less than twenty to thirty bucks - the most. The 60s era crab cockarde is almost worth that.
Did the seller even divulge the man's name?
...and by the way, the stars on the shoulder-boards are incorrect - they should be silvered.
Fellow collectors are NOT adversaries to be bested...

The seller did not, he only said that the widow of the man approached him to sell these items. I figured the story was fake, or at least highly embellished. I think it should also be of note that this group as it currently sits is not for a great deal of money (30 doll-hairs including shipping). I figured it might be worth the shot for at least the early cockade and the shoulder boards as items on their own. Thoughts on the price?
