    I got many nice items for ym collection in 2014, but the very best are Royal Yugoslav U-boat badge and Eickhorn-made Royal Yugoslav dagger. Both are extremely nice pieces, which are missing even from the most advanced collections around. (some 4 such daggers and less than 10 such badges known to collector's community and museums today).

    John, always happy to share this hobby with people like you. Soem very nice pieces, congratulations to all. This one has been my last but probably the best of the year. Vizeadmiral Walter Matthiae reefer, Seekommandant from Lorient (10 Sep 1944-10 May 1945) and Deutsches Kreuz in Silber winner (11 Apr 1944). It came also with a WW1 EKI and coastal artillery war badge. The cloth DKiS is abosolutly amazing.

    Jim, These are all fantastic! You have quite a growing collection of medal bars. Here is a nice "frackspange" from my collection. It shows some pre-1914 service. Best Pierce
