Do you have original serbian / royal yugoslav chetnik items from WWII ? Let us see your badges, cockades, patches and daggers or other items.

Hi, Here are mine. First 3 badges were found together, the badge portraying General Mihailovic is French made (probably for Serbian emigrees), as for the other two I have no idea where they have be

Also these, good or bad? They were sold couple of years ago on Serbian internet auction site.

This whole lot are reproductions, someone said to me that might be a variety, but I never saw such variety before, so I strongly believe that these are reproductions.

 

They didn't end up on Ebay though, they sold localy in Serbia.Perhaps poor new owner think they are very rare....

Guys,

all the above Infantry Cap badges are fakes, I am really sorry if someone from here bought one of those recently, please contact the seller(s) and demand your money back, this is really shame that happening with these beauties.

Here is how an original SDS (Nedic Adminstration Cap badge) looks like , the copies lack details at the reverse and edges at the front are not sharp, with flaws,as you can see from the photos Paja upload.

 

So beware when you wish to purchase or bring photos here.

Thanks, as always most useful! That lot appeared in 2012. and all 5 were sold for around 150 euros which would in my opinion be more than excellent price if they were original. If I remember well the seller wrote in description that they were found at some old lady's home or something like that. What's interesting is that just couple of months later same seller sold one more for almost 100 euros. So 5 for 150, 1 for 100...

Again many thanks for photos of original emblem. Is there any other difference between SDK and SDS emblems apart from the color of the cloth?

Hello gents,

Some of you have already seen these items, one or more of the red m39 badges might have replaced cloth, please feel free to comment.

Serbman, the squiggly lines I'm talking about are to the left of the word "ravna"

Just beautiful! Thanks for sharing photo of your amazing collection with us!

Apart from the cloth perhaps being replaced on some of them and one missing P2 everything else seems to be in order. 

To me the most obvious detail that right away tells me if the emblem is fake is monogram.

Posts 247,248 I agree there's a huge difference in the quality of the two medals. The silver one is three dimensional while the dark one is two dimensional at best. The last letter E in the word gradjanske the makers ran out of room and had to tilt up. The whole thing is missing fine detail, but the "patina" is kinda impressive.

    • 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.
