  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
  12. An infantry (red) embroidered braid badge for NCO's ( Non-commissioned officers), caps/shajkache, very rare and this is the only one I have every seen. Not sure what the sticker on the back is for, maybe someone could shed some light.
  13. Major Milan Cvjetičanin's (1915-1963) original embroidered braid badges from the war. Embroidered braid badges were also used for the navy, air force and firemen, and they would be used as makeshift Chetnik badges during the war. Navy Air force
  14. Some examples shown on caps and shajkache. Different colours for different units, Red - Infantry Black - Artillery Blue - Cavalry Violet (Purple) - Engineers Brown - Medical Green - Supply Cream - Chaplain Some examples of variations that have sold on Emedals over the years.
  15. Update, somebody has made an offer and purchased the 'miki-ni' knife.
  16. The eBay seller: miki-ni, has been selling these very nice looking Chetnik knives for a while and they are allays listed at around $500-$600, but just recently he has listed one at $1,000. This one looks nice but I am 100% sure it's a fake like the other ones, it looks very similar to the chetnik m24 kama dagger, but this one doesn't have the bayonet attachment on the end of the handle. I confronted the seller and asked him where he had gotten all of the knives and badges that he had for sale. He told me that he had bought everything in Serbia in the town of Kruševac from a family, who during
  17. Aha, I wasn't to sure about the authenticity of those two they are my fathers and I wasn't aware. Seeing as its like $1,000 for an original (even if you can find one) no wonder there are so many replicas. Here is another 'wartime kokarda', this one is in pretty bad condition and the skull is damaged not sure if this one is real. Also the "kovnica a.d. Beograd" is barley visible so I am pretty sure that this might be a casting, maybe done during WW2 if original. If you ask me it's an original, but as you can see I am no expert. See photos below
  18. Hey, I recently found this listing, claiming to be a tunic of the Royal Guard of the Kingdom of Serbia. The seller also doesn't make it clear which King Peter's guard it was, listed as ''Kingdom of Serbia - Uniform of the Royal Guard RRR''. But when I look at pictures of real tunics the patters are different and they don't match up, does anyone know what this is? See pictures attached. Real King Peter Guard
  19. Here are some of my original chetnik cockade the first one is what I believe is called a ‘wartime’ cockade and the other one I’m pretty sure is a ‘Dinarska’ cockade, from the ones worn by the Dinarska Division.
  20. Hey, I'm new to this forum and I've been collecting original WW2 chetnik memorabilia and been seeing this dagger on eBay that claims to be real. But when I go back and look at past conversations on the forum I can see that this same seller has sold fakes before. I'm just not sure whether its real or not as the sheath looks identical to some that I can find in original WW2 photos, but not the actual dagger. Also if you look at the images listed with the item they are completely different to the one being sold. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/SERBIA-assault-chetnik-knife-knife-WWII/123089896557
