  1. I agree, great set of family photos. Thanks for posting/sharing. Best Regards, JustinG
  2. I appreciate you checking out my collection and the other fine examples posted here. One of my favorite aspects of collecting. Sometimes it seems like an underappreciated area of collecting. Best Regards, JustinG
  3. Thanks for sharing this. Very nice. Best Regards, JustinG
  4. Funny how when you are looking for something for such a long time and then another one comes along. They are like hens teeth though. Much like the Prinz Eugen tallies. They are few and far between. Really interesting to see both a cotton and metal thread version of this ship. BTW. This is the last named ship that had a tally constructed, before the OKM issued orders to produce only Kriegsmarine tallies for security purposes.
  5. Here is mine from the East Asia squadron from WW1. Best Regards, JustinG
  6. 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
  7. Great pictures Eric, thank you for posting/sharing. Is the minesweeper an epoxy or ceramic? What is the base material? Best Regards, JustinG
  8. 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
  9. Light Kreuzer with kriegsflag.
  10. @dedehansen With much thanks. Great info. Best Regards, JustinG
  11. 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
  12. Just saw this post. Looks like you were able to solve your question pretty well. Best of luck to you in your PhD project. Best Regards, JustinG
  13. Congratulations on your retirement. It is wonderful when a song can transport us back to a time of our youth. Best Regards, JustinG
  14. 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?
  15. Looks like zerstörer Leibrecht Maaß might be also in this photo. Great image
