  1. By the way, the positioning of the award loops - is that indicative of a wound badge, other combat-type badge (like an infantry-assault badge), or could be other things? Again, sorry for the rookie questions.
  2. Thanks again! These old-style German letters befuddle me!
  3. Thanks! Yep - those are the shouldersraps. “KS” for Kriegsschule. I’m not sure of the letter below - is it a W?
  4. For sure! Here’s the whole thing. Sorry - not sure why the pics are rotated, and my photography skills leave much to be desired.
  5. Thanks much! I thought it might be “I.R.”! Please forgive the rookie question - it’s my first German uniform.
  6. This infantry Waffen oak has a stamp which reads “Gepruft ____________ 115”. I’ve got some guesses as to the other letters, but am I tesetest in opinions. The middle of the stamping is kind of light, so I tried to fool around with the colors to make it stand out better. Any thoughts appreciated!
  7. Bummer. Thanks, though, John. I really appreciate the explanation rather than the unhelpful comment of simply "fake" you get other places. Live and learn!
  8. The one and only TR qualification badge I've ever bought is this one. Came with a original DD Luft helmet that the seller believed came from the same vet. I've spent countless hours reading threads on these things and comparing my badge to the pics I've found, but I'm still unsure whether this is good or not. From what I gather, there seems to be some controversy as to whether this maker made observer badges (I think most say yes), and if they did, whether the badges were only marked "JMME" as opposed to "JMME&Sohn..." I'd love some feedback on this. I'm primarily a US Army Air Force collector and really a novice at best in this area. Thanks for any thoughts anyone has!
  9. Sorry - been away for awhile. I never did remove the cockade. Not sure what the back looks like, but I presume it's from the era.
  10. Hello Gents and Merry Christmas from across the pond! I picked this up recently here in the States, and thought I'd run it across you all. I think it's a WWII Luft aircraft component of some sort, perhaps for starting the engines. Thoughts? Thanks for any ideas you may have!
  11. Thanks, Chip. I'm in the dark as to this stuff, so the help is greatly appreciated.
  12. I grabbed a magnet - the cross is attracted by a magnet. The ring has a maker mark on the ring (I presume) of either M or 3 I think.
  13. Thanks! I thought it was pretty nice, with some character. I'm not sure if it's magnetic or not - I'll check that out. From my limited surfing about the internet, it looks like the hat may be a mine service or railroad hat? This is wayyy outside my sphere of knowledge.
