  1. Hello gentlemen, I got this German helmet in Croatia. He has the soldier's name written in Croatian: "Beržaj, Stjepan". The photos were not so good, but maybe you can notice that he has a gray paint and in some places with wear, it is possible to see a dark blue paint. Does that mean something or is it just normal? Thanks
  2. Hello! Thank you very much for the explanations! It helped a lot to better understand the inscriptions !! Thank you very much
  3. The Serbian helmet has a shaved red star and some Bosnian inscriptions on the inside. They are: "January 1988", "May '89. This helmet was used in January 88" and also "guja". I don't know what the last one means. On the front flap, it says: "II S V" with pen and "P7Z", crossed out on top. I don't know what conflicts this type of helmet was used for. Would you have any good ideas? The other helmet is a German model from DDR. It was a model used during the Croatian war by the Croats, together with other models of helmets. There is an inscription on the liner that I can't quite
  4. Hello gentlemen, I would like to share with you this helmet of the "Paulista" model of the Brazilian civil war of 1932. During that war, steel helmets were used for the first time in Brazil. When the war between the state of São Paulo and the federal government of Brazil, São Paulo began to prepare for the conflict. With that, São Paulo started making steel helmets based on 2 helmets from the first war that a Brazilian collector had brought to Brazil. Three different models were manufactured at the same time: one based on MKI and two based on Adrian. One of the
  5. Correcting an error: The correct thing about the inscriptions on the helmet is: "They are:" January 1988 "," May '89. This helmet was used in January 88 "and also" guja ".

  7. Hello Gentlemen, A friend of mine traveled and found this medal with a lot of medals from a Brazilian veteran of World War II. I'm Brazilian and as far as I know of Brazilian medals, she doesn't seem to be Brazilian. So far I only have a picture of one side of it. I bought it from him and she is coming through the post office and I only have this picture of her for now. She looks like Chile's "Minerva Medal". But if drawing is still quite different I hope you can help me. I appreciate your opinions
  8. Here are the other photos. In the first photo we have from left to right: General Clyde D. Eddleman, a man I did not identify and General Matzky. In the second photo, there are a series of German and English officers. In the left corner appears Adolf Heusinger and General Matzky. I don't know the officers on the left. The last photo depicts the staff of the German embassy in Tokyo. In the far right corner, you can see then Colonel Matzky and the spy Sorge
  9. Hello gentlemen, I have some photos that I got on a batch of items from General Gerhard Matzky. I'm researching who the other people in the photos are. I will share the photos for you to see and, also, eventually if you can help me with the identification of other people in the photos if possible. I still have other photos and I'll post them later because I haven't taken pictures of them yet. In the first photo, we have General Matzky and the Queen of England celebrating his birthday. I don't know who the people next to Queen Elizabeth would be. In the second photo, as it i

  11. Hello gentlemen, What is your opinion about this uniform? Thanks
  12. Hello gentlemen, A friend of mine found this lot with German badges and medals and sent me these images. Most of them look horrible to me. But I come to ask your opinion on whether there is any hope that there is something original here. As soon as I get more photos, I'll update them here. I appreciate your opinions, Thanks
  13. Very thanks!!! It was very enlightening. Thank you for your help! Incredible work! I appreciate it
  14. Hello gentlemen, I have this second war document from veteran automotive mechanic Willian H. Wilson. There are two lines, just below the title "extract" and also in front of the name "Wilson, William H. Tec 5 32954264 965", with many abbreviated words and acronyms that I cannot understand very well. I would appreciate any clarification and help! Thanks
