  1. [attachmentid=56947]HI everyone,i'm new to the Forum and i thought i would share my small KM collectionwith you.I've been collecting on and off for many years from TR to British cap badges and back to TR.Years ago i decided to concentrate on Kriegsmarine badges only,mainly Schwerins.I really like the quality and design of the badges.I was never really that avid a collector,just a couple of pieces a year but now i have the "bug"and plan on adding to my collection.Following are some of my favorite badges,thanks for looking,Martin.First are a pair of Juncker Auxillary Cruisers.
  2. [attachmentid=57001]The reverse of the U-Boat badge.An unmarked Schwerin.

  10. [attachmentid=56956]This last badge is not KM as you can see but it is one of my Favorite badges.I really like this early Juncker,a little on the worn side but i keep it because of my lifelong fascination with the Battle of Britain.I hope you've enjoyed looking at my collection as much as i've enjoyed looking at some of yours over the past couple of days,warmest regards,Martin.

  20. Hi Marc,beautiful set,is the AC a Schwerin or Juncker?Hard to tell in the group picture.I really like the "darkening"around the land areas,thanks,Martin.
