  1. Indeed Chris, & even if images are printed out, a lot of the modern colour printing inks can fade & disappear after a number of years....
  2. Thanks Joe, even more so when you consider that it is a passport size picture so just over 2 inches high!
  3. Almost two years on from your question Robert & I have finally found one!!!
  4. Thank you Gentleman. Joe, I've never seen any signs of lacquer on any of the pieces that I've picked up. I guess it's probably down to them only being worn for a very short period of time compared to membership badges etc.
  5. Glad that you enjoyed it Joe. Here's a set from Landeck's 1941 Kreisschiessen.... Cheers Don
  6. Welcome to the forum. A very impressive site. I would be interested in seeing what else you have. Thanks for sharing Don
  7. Hi Eric, A very nice piece, especially for $7. Yes I can confirm that the ribbons were the same for both of the above awards. Here is one of my Thüringer medals with ribbon Cheers Don
  8. Hi, I'm sorry that no one has been able to help you. I'm afraid that these are outside of my collecting area as well so am of little help. Don
  9. Hi Eddie, Thank you for the link to your museum, a fabulous collecion indeed.... So many items that I have never seen. Thanks again Don

    Ehrenzeichen für Mitglieder der Feuerwehr Provinz Hannover Made of Zinc hence some loss of finish which is correct.

  12. It's great to finally see what the reverse set up is like, thank you. Thank you also for the pictures of the "unfinished" piece. I see some differences between the eagle & Swaz on these pieces, whilst the Swastika looks more defined on the "unfinished" piece, the eagle's head leaves something to be desired LOL. Thank you again for answering a 25 year old question for me. Don
  13. Excellent informtion Matthew, thank you. I have spent many years wondering about it, glad that I kept the picture now. I look forward to seeing more pictures if you are willing to share them, thank you. And yes, I can see the railroad eagle now that you mention it. Been a goos week for me what with the Gau Baden info as well.... Many thanks again. Don
  14. Matthew, Have you ever seen this badge before, or know anything about it? It was shown on an old forum about 25 years ago, I saved the picture but have never seen another. Unfortunately only the obverse image was shown... The eagle & Swaz look a little crude to me. Don
