  1. Here's a link to one of the guys that manufacture and sell them (as reproductions of course). Don't know how big of a market there is for those but it seem big enough to make them en masse: https://allegro.pl/oferta/emblemat-stahlhelm-1939-reich-odznaka-rzesza-a10-8115130538
  2. It's a Freikorps Sudetenland buckle. Sorry, can't help with authenticity of it.
  3. If I had to pick between Zorro or Zeppelin, I'd pick Zeppelin but truth is I never researched it to be 100% sure.
  4. Hitler pin is an election piece, one below is Youth Hostel donation pin, the other two age generic sports day tinnies.
  5. I'm afraid you're right. Once again, a disappearing act and some unanswered questions. Coming soon to (another) forum near you, I am sure.
  6. No, in my opinion it is not genuine, pre 1945 item. Are you the same person who posted this item on War Relics Forum? Someone did but when the questions were posed in regards to this item, the original poster decided to pack it in. http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/non-combat-uniforms-related-insignia-third-reich/nskk-membership-badge-gold-diamonds-rubies-736703/
  7. It is not a membership pin. There was no member of NSKK with a rank that would require a diamond studded membership pin. If anything, something unofficial. Question is the vintage. Judging by the finish (unpolished marks on the verso) and rather chaotic layout of stones, my guess would be circa 2000's (that's date, not its worth). IMO, of course.
  8. It's a fake based on Stahlhelm's Jager sleeve patch & Veteranenschilde.
  9. Stars can't shine without darkness, friend. All the best to you and your daughter.
  10. Pics of the document seem to be gone but here's one pf the pins it represented. Zinc badge on ferrous needle.
  11. Were any of the pictured crosses issued by the army? Reason I ask is we see them in plenty of them in photos, they do seem to look uniform from one example to another, we even know they were made by some of the army suppliers (although of generally different wares, C.E. Juncker among them). Here are two that are said to be official issue crosses. But were they the only ones that were officially issued? Or did they simply differ between 1st and 2nd world wars?
