  1. I have seen a few Portugese pilot badges going around a few dealers and on Ebay advertised as WW2 era wings, in fact I just bought one for $20 - they are a thinish pressed badge that looks aged, with a pin and catch assembly. I am told these are not WW2 and that the pre 1945 Portugese pilot badge is of a much more solid in construction - would anyone have a scan of such as example. Thanks. CMF
  2. No. 585 is for sale here http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/sho...ad.php?t=218936 $1695 I believe. Ed can you empty your PM box, I sent you a PM but it does not appear to be reaching you? Regards, Colin

  6. I have been trying to locate/purchase an undamaged Ernestine Knights Cross 1st Class with swords (1914-18 war time version) for some time. I have managed to find a few repaired pieces, but nothing more. Are these particularly rare or just hard to find? Cheers, Colin
  7. This is the precertification document for Bronze cross without swords I believe. Birnbaum ended becoming a Hs 129 pilot with 10 (Pz)./SG 9. Cheers, Colin
