HERES A STICK PIN I OWN, IT CAME WITH A GROUPING OF FREIKORP ITEMS AND ALSO HAD A WW1 TANKERS BADGE STICK PIN WITH IT, SO NOT SURE IF THE STICK PIN SKULL IS DUE TO BEING A TANKER OR FREIKORPS, DUE TO ALL OF IT WAS TOGETHER?? BUT A VERY NICE AND RARE STICK PIN.

here is a Von Epp diamond with gold trim, the gold trim from what I remember is because he was a active member of the Freikorp.

:cheers: Mike!!!! The oval insignia is VerKuilen Ager's #110, which I don't think has ever been attributed to a specific unit.

The cross is the Cross of the Baltic Landwehr-- in my opinion the most interesting of the 1919 awards since it was worn by Germans, Latvians-- and British! Supposedly latvian to oust the Bolsheviks, it was taken over by the Germans, who were then squeezed out when the Latvian government called in British aid. It's last commander became British Field Marshal Alexander of WW2 fame.

Absolute beauties, like Eric's I'm just seeing now.

is this Freikorps related?

That's a badge I've been after for ages.

I think it inspired the later Dirlewanger collar patch.
