  1. Hi Guys, Wonder if any can help me identify these two uniforms, that I suspect are British, but I am not sure. Also if they can be dated. Thanks, Kind regards Karsten
  2. Hi Guys, I was looking through the papers in the folder that was left for us about our house build in 1901. Among photo´s, old deed´s etc, I was very surprised to find copies of an old police report dated 1940 and a later newspaper article about my house. When the war broke out the occupying German forces detained British war reporters and one of them, R.Selkirk Panton was interned in my house for a short period!! I did a quick search on him, but unfortunately I could not find a photo of him. Apparently he was a very significant journalist. This is was I found: Selkirk Panton was a
  3. Hi, It is a fine unmarked Meybauer Clasp. You will find the research here: Maker Revealed of unmarked LW Clasp Best Regards Karsten
  4. The Juncker Airgunner Arrows pointing out some of the many difference on eagle and wreath from the Deumer AG
  5. Hi John I do not have any info that Juncker is the deliver of parts to Deumer for their Airgunner, do you? That would be new info for me in that case. A part for this, I have to kindly disagree with your assumptions. First of all, the J4 ROAG and the Juncker airgunner do share the same wreath, but the eagles are different, so a "bolts removed or a correction to the die" of the eagle as you state is IMO out of the question. I have pointed out a few of the differences ( see attached images) The Eagle on the Juncker Airgunner was made from it´s own die. If you compare the Juncker Air
  6. Hi Dan Time-line of Deumer. A. Is the first of Deumers ROAG´s and is a fully Juncker Design of Eagle and wreath. No Doubt that Juncker was involved in this. If they where made by Juncker, is not really known for sure, but it seems very likely that Juncker produced the eagles and wreaths for Deumer, but Deumer assembled them, and applied the set-up on the reverse is quite clear. There is also some uncertainty about date, but it should be approx. 1938/39-1940 B. A Deumer produced ROAG in Nickel-Silver. Different eagle and wreath from Juncker. Easiest way to tell them apart with the nak
  7. Hi Guys, I was wondering if anybody could help me to find some information on a Major Hans Otto Franke. He was apparently a commander in the 116th PANZER DIVISION "Windhund". Reciepient of Ehrensblatt, Deutsche Kreuz, Eisernes Kreuz I & II and Verwundetenabzeichen in Gold. I was able to secure this 57er DKIG and the miniatures. I would really like to see a photo of him and learn more about him. He apparently continued his career in the Bundeswehr Best Regards Karsten
  8. Hi Guys BTW, The Clasps in post #1,3 & 13 are most likely Meybauer and not FLL. Best Regards Karsten
  9. Hi Mike Very nice Flak you have there. You just tempted me, to post mine Best Regards Karsten
  10. Hi Guys Very interesting thread indeed. I must say that I am with Darell on this. IMO there is no doubt that this is a cast from an original ROAG. I would be very surprised if this bird holds the dimensions and weight. What immediately stroke me was the very narrow long neck, slim wings and body. The wreath also seems more oval that usual, but this can of course be due to the angle of the image. As Tom mention the rivets are off. They look very titty/convex which that are not suppose to. The rivets should be in a flat cylinder shape, and it is the rivet tool that has the point in the c
  11. Hi Dave I have this and not my ballgame, so if you are interested in it drop me a pm. Best Regards Karsten
