  1. You might try one the the sniper forums. East Germany did award a marksman cord. Several versions for: Panzer, Artillery, Motor Infantry, Border Gaurd and regular infantry including Airborne and Air Force.
  2. These were on the US market sometime ago. SSG82 Sniper rifle made in East Germany.
  3. If anyone would like a full sized copy please email me at: Kirk1957@aol.com
  4. I have a color copy for the paper ribbons issued if that might help?
  5. Gordon, Which book is the photo from? Many thanks for the ID, Kirk
  6. Also notice the OD shoulder boards which are regulation. Dress boards were never worn by the NVA. Tho I will admit if you have the pink piped shoulder boards shown on ebay they will sell for a higher dollar value.
  7. The two piece Black Panzer uniform is different than the standard black work uniform. Notice the length of the jacket. You will see alot of work uniforms on ebay that the seller has added the Panzer patch too. The work uniform comes with plain pants. Also see the next, Black panzer overall's. Made for wearing over the dress uniform for tank repairs.
  8. 22 Part NVA Ribbon bar: Note the comradeship with Bulgaria is backwards.
  9. Paul, Uniform as long been sold. This was one of the last ones I bought from Bob Gowen in 1992. Ribbon bar isn't correct. Ribbons were a mix of NVA and Fire Fighter. Back then know one really knew what all the ribbons were. I gave $ 75 for the uniform with the ribbon bar, hat, shirt, tie, belt. And he told me it was all original.
  10. Border Guard Aviation. One of my favorites. Another favorite is the Transportation Helicopter Police.
  11. I have never seen a summer uniform with a cuff title. Is the jacket mdi or NVA coded? I am sure you have seen many Border Guard and Stasi Summer uniforms on ebay. None have cuff titles.
  12. The scan of the backside wouldn't turn out correctly. When the fakes are mounted in the bar, they are very hard to tell without a very close look. The impressions are lines if the pressing of the design, they can be seen and felt. Kirk
