  1. The first badge, is a complete example of a Model 1939 black (artillery) Officers badge of the Royal Yugoslav Army with the cypher of King Peter II. The second badge, is an incomplete example of a Model 1939 (unknown field) Officers badge of the Royal Yugoslav Army with the cypher of King Peter II missing from the center Coat of Arms. This is only a part of the badge as the metal and material backing, golden wreath and the King Peter II cypher, are all missing. Both of the badges are 100% original examples and were worn by Serbian Chetniks under the comand of General Dragoljub "Draza
  2. None of the Orders or Medals on his tunic are Serbian. Could you share some of the photos of him in Serbian uniform?
  3. In my opinion its fine. Thats just most likely because its sure a early production number! So probably the first 1,000 don't look exactly the same as the higher number ones. Thats the best explanation I can give. Look at what an even earlier number looks like (this is the lowest one Ive ever come across), this one is under 50...

  4. It's original but they were not made during WW2, rather post war (45 - 46) in Chetnik camps in Italy.
  5. The "II" was stamped after they were made in Eboli, Italy (1945 - 47), this was done by members of the post war Chetnik Association of Royal Yugoslav Combatants 'Draza Mihailovich" (Udruzenje Boraca Kraljevinske Jugoslovenske Vojeske 'Draza Mihailovic'). The "II" can be seen at the bottom of the Cyrillic "П" in their symbol of the Ravnogorski Znak (Ravna Gora Badge), which they adopted in emigration, with the addition of a wreath. This "II" stamped Cyrillic variation of the badge is usually seen with a high serial number on the revers of the badge, and is more uncommon than the normal Cyrillic
  6. Hard to say, the detail/patina is good on the front of the badge and the back looks about right. The only thing is the serial number, it's faint and not as strong as it should be. No concerns with the bolts on the back, as there were variations made with a nut and bolt attachment. In my opinion it's most likely an original piece, with the nuts missing from the back.
  7. I'm not 100% sure if it is authentic or not, because allot of these 'war casting' kokarde and badges have been popping up recently, and its very suspicious because its not that hard to fake. Here are some similar examples, of which I am also unsure of their authenticity.

  9. Hey Valjevo, it's most likely just a wartime customization of the badge as some Chetniks didn't believe in the 'Kingdom of Yugoslavia' ideology but rather just as Orthodox Serbs. This is the best reason I can give for the King Peter Karađorđević 2 kokarda having Serbian flag colours instead of Yugoslav flag colours. This is also easy to do as the monarch initials are just attached by tabs which hold them in place, therefor they can be easily be manipulated and removed form the kokarda. This is why you sometimes see these kokarde in good condition (not damaged), but missing the initial for the
  10. Standard Cyrillic “П” variation (number 005810), on German War Booty Archive. http://www.germanwarbooty.com/item-medals01/medals m5410.htm Standard Cyrillic “П” variation (number 002343), sold on The Saleroom. https://www.the-saleroom.com/en-gb/auction-catalogues/andrew-smith-and-son/catalogue-id-srandr10029/lot-cf20987e-ee26-4211-b656-a45a01222ceb Standard Cyrillic “П” variation (number unknown), belonging to Major Milan Cvjetičanin (1915-1963). The photo in Eboli camp shows, from left to right: Milivoje Vuksanovich, Jovo Keca, Tadija Metlicich, Stevo Radjenov
  11. The Ravnogorski Znak (Ravna Gora Badge) was made in Eboli, Italy of an aluminum alloy and was awarded to members of the Yugoslav Army in the Homeland (JVuO), starting at the end of 1945 until the end of 1946. A smaller version was also made and had a pin attached to the back (theses were not numbered on the back). These full-size badges were given to JVuO members who were then in Allied camps in Italy (Eboli) and Germany (Munster), but not to civilians. The triangular design, with an upright sword through the center, a human skull just above the hand guard, and palm and olive branches cro
