    The disk is all wrong, it is not good in my opinion.

    Hi there.

    As the others guys have said, this doesn’t look right. The SS Waffen looks out of place, as if it was added to a Heer example.

    I would read the Erkennungsmarke abbreviations as -

    Brückenkolonne B/158 (From Pionier-Bataillon 158).

    Pionier-Bataillon 158

    Kind regards,

    Will.

    Hi Ben.

    Not at all lol and this forum is a great place where we all can learn something new. We all get things wrong at times, me included.

    The best advice I can give is to look at original examples and also learn about different types of unit abbreviations.

    As Willmore has already realised, the ekm is an original Pioneer bridging unit that someone has added Waffen SS details. Such additions make the item worthless in most collectors eyes. A good original ruined by someone else’s greed.
