  1. This questionable badge is being flogged by a couple of related ebay.de accounts. The give away is the three dots on the laurel leaf. Combined with the non-Schott pin on the reverse this one is a no brainer fake.
  2. I don't like the maker mark on this one. Of course the pics could be better.

      Hi, thanks for the heads up... Nice tags, but I think it is Landwehr.

  3. He could have been a front fighter in WW1. He just didn't earn any awards. Maybe a young draftee that showed up in the final months only to be part of the retreat.
  4. I would call it more probable that the hindy in not correct. It indicates he was a frontline soldier yet didn't earn anything else the entire war? And no long service medal? You would see lots of bars like this for the 1870/1 crowd but not for the WW1 guys.
  5. I think it might have had a Franco-Prussian War commemorative vice the Hindy.
  6. I think that direct hit/penetration by a large caliber shell might have had something to do with it.
  7. Very nice documents. I assume the guy in the pics is the recipient of the first doc?
