  1. I´m afraid they´re post war. 1946 onwards up to 1975. Don´t clean it, keep it in a dry place. Best regards, Dolfek.
  2. Normally by the quality and if it's made of two pieces denotes an earlier issue. About the price, I wouldn't pay more than 10 bucks!! Regards, Dolfek.
  3. Castells, Barcelona. From Alfonso XIII period, or even earlier.
  4. Hello. Thanks for your reply. Once I had it in hand it looks much better than in the pictures. About the conservation, I have to say that it has never been cleaned, so it keeps a 100 years patina. The golden colours of the star and wings are there still. I'll post some pictures soon. Best regards, Dolfek.
  5. Hello everyone, I´ve seen this badge on the web and I couldn't avoid buying it. For what I know it´s a WWI period French pilot badge. Am I right? and I purchased a real deal, or it´s something else? Here´s the link: https://www.todocoleccion.net/milita...num~x118949239 Please, let me know your opinions. Thanks very much.
  6. This type of buckle is a 1943 type for enlisted. Maybe the latest replacement of the Blue Div. wore them on the way to the front.

    Japanese visor hat

    Thanks very much. I didn't understand how I couldn´t spot the differences between the M90 caps, and you solved the problem by telling me they used the same style. Thank you. So the cap I got it would be used mainly for parade, walking out or even for a "few" officers any other time. Once again, thanks very much. Best regards, Dolfek.

    Japanese visor hat

    Thanks so much. Anyone could tell me how to spot the difference between officers and enlisted. Did officers and other ranks wore the same hat style? At least during some time. I´ve seen many pictures and only see the same hat in most of them, except in those officers wearing big crown hats (german style). Thanks in advance. Best regards, Dolfek.
  10. Hello everyone, Finally I managed to get a japanese visor hat. It took me long as I was unable to spot the differences between officers and other ranks. And I still have serious doubts. Could anyone tell me if I´m correct by saying this hat it´s an officer's hat, and that it could match this uniform? Thanks very much. Best regards, Dolfek.

    Different medal

    Hello Gard, About your medal "MEDAL CARLISTA requetés for LOYALTY IN THE CRUSADE", it´s not for being wounded. It was awarded like that to veterans of this group during the spanish civil war. Awarded to veterans from the civil war, but after war, in 1964!! Being sold in Spain for about 85-135 euros. Have a look at these medals, all from the Carlism movement. http://www.coleccionesmilitares.com/medallas/texto/carlistas.htm Best regards, Dolfek.

    Japanese Tunic

    Yes, thank you. For sure, I even know that, but the seller didn´t. I wonder how many other items he has sold by "mistake"? I'll be posting photos soon. I wish I could get a cap. I'm having troubles identifying officers peak caps from enlisted ones. They look alike so much. I´m soo rookie in this field yet. Best regards, Dolfek.

    Japanese Tunic

    Finally I've received it. It's in good condition, well worn, and shows use. Also has traces of a string for medal purposes. Also the seller gave me some information about it, but is quite confusing. Here it is: "naval uniform of a Japanese army ensign during WW2. made of wool. Ensign lapel badge sewn on collar. name of owner embroidered on interior. Mr IKEYAMA. label of traders who produced naval uniform sewn on collar" Naval uniform? Who´s wrong here?? Is it anything missing around? At least I know what does it say in the label. Best regards, Dolfek.
  14. Wow I can't believe it!!!!!! I was around there last year!!!! I didn't know a shop like that existed.!!!!! Got to get back!!! Best regards, Dolfek.

    Japanese Tunic

    Thanks very much for the pictures. About the strings, can´t tell. I´ll have a close look once I have it in hand. Best regards, Dolfek.
