  1. Good to be able to post images on this forum again Morten. After the last update/refurb here I was unable to post images from my old computer ?? I have a new computer now,so I can finally be a little more active here being able to post images again. Regards,Martin.
  2. A group photo that appears to have been taken at the "Marineschule Wesermunde". Makes sense as the photographers stamp on the reverse is from a studio in Bremerhaven. Regards,Martin.
  3. Merry Christmas Morten. Cheers,Martin.
  4. I agree,but at least it's a good original,despite the damage. Regards,Martin.
  5. Still a great photo Edger. Thanks for the fine description. Cheers,Martin.
  6. Another very nice photo Morten and an equally nice description by Edgar. Thanks,Martin.
  7. The Schickle tombak HK is probably the rarest out there.I know of only two in collections. Sadly,i still cannot post photo's on this forum. Cheers,Martin.
  8. Not my area of collecting,but that is a super quality piece John. Lovely patina. Typical Schickle quality.Too bad they went out of buisness early in the war. One of my favorite pieces is my Schickle Hilskreuzer award. Regards,Martin.
  9. The catch certainly looks like it has been messed with. As you say,probably marks left from an alteration with pliers ?? Lovely badge BTW. Regards,Martin.
  10. That is a nice photo John. Super detail,enough to reveal the manufacturer of the badge. Regards,Martin.
  11. Sorry John, again i have tried to post images here on this forum with no luck.Every time i try,i get "upload failed". What am i doing wrong ???? This is very frustrating. Regards,Martin
  12. That is a very uncommon and desirable Minesweeper badge John. I have seen one of these bages with an L/18 mark on the mainpin,probably leftover Schickle stock that was picked up by Mayer in Pfortzheim when Schickle went under. I have a very rare Schickle Hilfskreuzer award with the same reverse set up,one of only three i know of. Regards,Martin.
  13. Thanks guys. For the additional image and the correction. Regards,Martin.
  14. The head of the person wearing the tally Jock. Regards,Martin.
  15. Hi Jock, it looks like it could be a Marine HJ tally in wear here ? Any chance of a close up ? If it is a Marine HJ tally then this is one big kid. Regards,Martin.
  16. One more attempt. No luck,i'll try again in a few days.
  17. Thanks Jock. Still hard for me to make out the number but i'll take your word for it that it's a "10". Cheers,Martin.
  18. That is a very nice looking tombak Deumer John. Great condition. Here is photo i have of one of these horizontal pin Deumer's in wear. It is on the Luftwaffe uniform from a member of the "Mausi" unit. Sorry,i cannot seem to upload any photo's on this forum right now.I'll try again later.All i get is "upload failed". Regards,Martin.
