Dear Friends,

Excellent pictures and thanks for some award numbers I did not know before.

I will be able to upload some scarce ones shortly since I managed to get large collection of

1st republic Estonian badges of Army and Kaitseliidu.

Let me know if there is some special item you would like to see picture and If its

availabe I'll be happy to post it!

I love the quality and design of these items.

Very impressive items, and a very impressive collection. What is this collecting filed like in terms of fakes ? Has it been targetted by fakers or is it still relatively "safe" ?

Not completely safe but safer than 90% of the areas. Tricky thing for beginners may be the current 2nd republic pieces that were adopted for many units directly from old design and even maker is most of the time the same. When I get some time I'll post current Pilot's badge in comparison with 1930's piece.
