Very nice Gentlemen. I alas do not have any of these in my collection, just haven't been at the right place at the right time I guess.

Any more to see?

Cheers

Of course there are ;) Here's one I've been told is an early type. Possibly a St.&L. ?

Mr. Rosenberg I would venture a guess that your example would be an early version and nice it is. Peter, I have one like yours which I have to find and post.

Another oddity. It's marked 900 SM and measure 15.6x15.6mm. I believe it initially had some kind of needle-attachment with a catch, but this seem to have been filed off and instead a bar as been added. An odd arrangement, for which I see no practical purpose :unsure:

As I suspected I'm afraid, the infamous RZM M1/133 fake. These have indeed been around for many years, in fact the first SS/FM fakes appeared in the middle to late 1960's!!

As to Kelly's pins, indeed they are bad as well, & he has been trying to sell them for years.......

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
