Hello, I'm a new member on the forum and I need your opinions on a few items that I have in my collection. Let me start off with this E-Boat medal. I'm almost certain that it's bogus but I'm not enough of an authority to really know for sure. I'd appreciate it if you would take a look and let me know what you think.I'll be posting up more suspect items as time permits. Thank you all for your help.......Brooks

Thanks for your expertise Gordon. I appreciate it. I am, as I said, just looking to confirm the fact that it was bad. I never hurts to ask. Thanks again for your time, Brooks

It's actually SBW, which stands for Sean Barry Weske, who produced cast copies of Third Reich badges and medals - and other things - in vast numbers in the 1970s and 1980s. They were considered very good for what they were and never pretended to be other than copies, although some flea market traders certainly gulled people with them.

Thank you. Very enlightening. A friend brought this back from Poland about two years ago. It was a freebe so I'm not to concerned about it. I've always had my doubts about it being an original however.Thanks again. It's always nice to have an "expert" opinion. Brooks

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
