  1. Yes he is referring to the marked versions of these.... He says that he believes that the ones with maker marks may be the fakes rather than the unmarked ones...
  2. Personally I like them. It's the unmarked ones that I've often wondered about.
  3. Good to hear from you after all this time Ralf, I hope that you are well? Don
  4. Hi Adlerhorst! You may be correct, for several years I have had a feeling that the unmarked ones could be fake. The pin on my one is the same strength as on my marked one & the quality is as good, but I have never been happy with it. I fully believe that the Frauenschaft badges made by Osange are fake because the quality of the lettering is too good under magnification. Probably machine cut rather than hand cut. Thanks Don
  5. These small ones are sweet aren't they. A lovely find,thank you for posting it. Don
  6. I had time to dig through my images at the weekend. I have the silver version.... I've also put it with the "bund" version to compare. Don
  7. Thank you for your replies Adlerhorst. If you have the time it would be nice to see some of your collection... Yes I have a couple of the Sängergau pins but at this time I cannot remember if they are honour version or not, when I get time I shall have a look. Best regards Don
  8. The shape of the plate holding the pin indicates that this is of post war manufacture.
  9. The ski badge is beautiful as well . Are the other two badges doubles from your collection or are they the same badges that have been cleaned? Don
  10. Thank you. The badge is one piece, unlike the fake/fantasy version that has a separate green enamel wreath. Don
  11. Welcome to the forum. Very nice!!! It is not often that you see tinnies from the Tirol. Thank you for showing them
  12. A fine piece Joe, thank you for posting it. Here are the rest of the set.... D
