Condor Legion Tank Badge

Recommended Posts

Gentlemen,

I thought I would try stirring up some dust, things seem a little slow. Here is my offering. Please post your CLTB. I think we will have 3 possibilities. The rare and pretty much non-existant Portguese is one, and the second two are the German stamped versions, with differences in the wreath, tank, bones, etc.

And are either of the German badges Wernstein produced pieces?

Thanks,

Mark

Here's a detailed picture of one in wear.

All the photos of 'in wear' badges I have seen have the 'natural' bones...........rather than the 'stick' bones in the badges posted above.

I've never seen the 'stick' bones in wear................but I'd like to!

Fine John,

Sorry, I didn't even think about putting it there. DUH!

Robin,

I guess this is a dumb question, what what exactly is the difference bewtween the 'natural' and the 'stick' bones?

Regards,

Mark

I'm with you on this one, Mark. A 'textbook' example by Wiedmann as far as I'm concerned...and in wonderful condition!

Mark.

The stick bones just look like a bunch of sticks............as on the 2 badges shown at the top of this thread!

Hi Robin,

I think posts 15, 18 show stick bones badge thus your post 14. I think I have a couple more in my files. at least the stick bones variant isn't known on LC period uniform, but only on war period Wehrmacht ones.

Which is interesting on your first pic is that we distinguish the top of the pin and what seems to be the hinge. this one looks like the repaired pin badge sold by Weitze few years ago, on which the pin makes a loop at the top.

By chance, are your pics named?

Very nice portraits you shown us, if you want to part of the 2 first ones, PM me :rolleyes:

The only thing more suspect than the badges he sells are the COAs he sends with them. That is one minefield I'll stay out of.

Have you had dealings with this seller before Don? Paddy has been educating me on the value of Mr Niemann's COA, but I'm still a babe in the woods in the militaria field. The auction finishes soon, so I've kept a copy of the photo - the file is too big for the GMIC site so here is a link if anyone wants to see it:

Here's my Legion Condor Panzer Badge, Portugese manufacture. I've posted it previously on GMIC.

The pin is obviously a replacement, the catch is probably original but crudely repaired with solder.
