  1. Greetings, I see you have posted in this topic as well. This has some great examples and also some precautionary warnings from members about these tradition badges. I am posting the link in-case some members don't know of this particular thread existence. Here you will see some examples of peoples tradition badges from their collections. Bottom line, if you are happy with the item, then that is what is important. Best Regards, JustinG
  2. Great pictures Eric, thank you for posting/sharing. Is the minesweeper an epoxy or ceramic? What is the base material? Best Regards, JustinG
  3. I really hope you are getting these at reproduction prices. These badges are highly faked because many were onboard production using metal like brass or tin, crudely made in most cases. Without provenance, you will never likely recoup your costs if you are paying what some of these items might be worth. The stone cup is pure fantasy IMHO. The pin has so much detailing. I feel that someone onboard would never have had the time to keep the mustache and cut out the space between shoulder and mustache, or that this detail would have survived being worn on a cap without snapping off. The Georg Hogel book made it great for anyone with a rough idea of metal works to attempt to create castings of these awards. Please be very careful with these emblem/wappen. Best Regards, JustinG
  4. Light Kreuzer with kriegsflag.
  5. @dedehansen With much thanks. Great info. Best Regards, JustinG
  6. I would like to share a piece I recently acquired. This unit was in operation/Service from August 1940 to October 1944. A lovely tile piece 16cmx16cm. I am not sure what the "OP Zoom" means. If you know, please share. Thanks for looking Best Regards, JustinG

  8. Congratulations on your retirement. It is wonderful when a song can transport us back to a time of our youth. Best Regards, JustinG
  9. Ok guys. Here is an interesting one. A nice seasoned sailor from the Panzerschiff Deutschland. Guessing he has a 4 and a 12 year service medal but I can't figure out what the third one is? I assume it is possibly a foreign decoration, can any of you shed light on it?
  10. Looks like zerstörer Leibrecht Maaß might be also in this photo. Great image
  11. Here's another I did a while back.
