    Oh yes i know where now !!!

    As far as it being Langemarke they were Flemish not Dutch volunteers and not all of Nederland was wiped out he's a bit astray on the History !! but that aside ,

    When i looked at this one before i wasn't happy with it, a Double decal to the Nederland must be very very rare and the runic shield on these photos doesn't look good.

    This has to be one that you need to get in hand and have a good look at the decals , measure the size , width and height,width of the runes and look for the metallic content.

    The Dutch decal , well i've never seen one, did they exist ??

    To many questions to be paying nearly 3000 !!!

    regards

    Paul

    Wrong shape, runes -shield etc, not authentic look, artificially aged and thoughts about the shield - did they exists- 98% not
