  1. Hello, could I ask you what it is? Is it a button? And if so could you show the back side please? cheers |<ris ps great collection!
  2. You can change your ebay adress and I am sure you must be able to find some one willing to use his ebay account to buy it for you.... |<ris
  3. Also a very rare, never issued, police fez. Only used by native police members in secundary important city's. In primory important city's the tri-color roundel was replaced by a roundel bearing the city logo, only one such a city got his own police city roundel and that was Leopold-ville. Note that the tricolor roundel has a reversed following up of the Belgian colors, thise was a regulation for all tricolor roundels on native uniforms. Last two time pictures aren't mine, courtesy http://kitokocongobelge.skyrock.com cheers |<ris
  4. Hey Chris, it probably might have!!.... Sadly no history to it from the place I got it. cheers |<ris
  5. Here some original die's, used for the making of different Weermacht /FP insigna's and medals;
  6. Here is one of my Belgian Congo official officers swords, pre 1908 periode. Next picture shows one on a time pic. Many Scandinavian volunteerd in the Weermacht/FP, the guy on the picture is a Dane in Belgian Congo service.
  7. Dog tags aren't my favourite militaria item, but thise one is! It is the badge of a person who served in the Belgian Weermacht / force publique in Belgian Congo. That army was founded in 1885 to protect and help the Belgian kolonialists in Congo. Only 100.000 European men served in that army from the start till the end in 1960. So imagine my surprise finding a legitimation badge / dog tag with a number as low as thise one. The coat of arms of Congo appearing on the badge tells it was used during the periode 1885 untill 1908, the time Congo was the private property of king Leopold II. Any Belgian Weermacht item of that periode (before 1908) is very rare to find. I think I must be able to find out to who the badge belonged with the number it bears, that might bring out a other surprise..... ;-) cheers |<ris
  8. Very nice medal, thanks for showing. It is on my list,..."to get one day"....! cheers |<ris
  9. Sorry, just noticed the way of posting images, so I will redo my post. Primary post can be deleted. A example of thise medal was recently sold on ebay.be;
