  1. Now that would interesting Bayern i know little about these items ( including the proper name) but there seem to be no visual differences between this and any other Leuchtpistole . also , to me the engraving and white paint appear totally original to the period and of the right quality. i appreciate your time and research. if you need any more pictures please let me know best wishes martin
  2. Thank you Bayern , I stand corrected. any thoughts on the Ev.br 100 ?
  3. Evening gentlemen please see below my deactivated ayf 43 dated Kampfpistole can anyone please tell me what the white lettering stamped over the top of ayf means or relates to ? Best wishes Martin
  4. Cheers Steve dont eat to many Easter eggs mate 👍
  5. Evening gents please find attached pics of a K98 bayonet and scabbard I am thinking of purchasing. i think the bayonet is good but I'm not sure about the scabbard? there are no stampings at all on the scabbard , having said that , I have heard that not all do have markings ? ive also heard of Chinese replicated scabbards? i have not been able to post all pics on this one post but can post more on a separate post help appreciated as usual martin More pics
  6. And thanks for the pictures John, identical finish to my example
  7. Thanks John thought the paint looked a touch glossy thats why I wondered if it might be lacquered martin
  8. Dear all please have a look at the pictures of a steel wound badge I recently acquired . my question is : painted? re-painted? Lacquered? all opinions appreciated Martin

  10. Following the help from Mr J Temple west regarding my infantry Assault badge , and his request to see more pictures of the pin , I have now solved my picture uploading problem. it related to an iOS 11 issue. anyway , I hope Mr West sees this . The pin has no " crook" at the top as most others seem to but it does have age and patina to match the piece , a period replacement ? Martin 2
  11. Just read your reply regarding the M1 again Steve , I’d missed the the bit about the dent coming out easy like my loose pin easy fix scenario , just off to my little workshop now ,,,,,, not
  12. Hello again mr West ive been trying to upload pictures of the pin now that I have the award but for some reason I’m not having any luck so far . however , I can tell you that the pin is straight rather than having a slight crook before the long straight if that makes sense. so I presume it to be a replacement. the pin does look to me to be of the same period as the badge , perhaps damaged in service and then later repaired ? i will still try to send a picture many thanks martin2
  13. Hi Laurentius thank you so much for your help best wishes martin
  14. Hi Stuka ive read the link wow , now that was a result , might try to find up the episode to watch. i guess that over the years I’ve also had some wonderful and valuable finds , not Militaria related. when I first started work , I was just levelling the base of some foundations and a million to one chance found a beautiful pair of knapped flint axe heads. and as a metal detectorist , I have found many beautiful coins and artefacts so I guess I shouldn’t grumble
