    Hi Mark, I am unable to see the pictures. The links provided are not working. Probably best to directly load to the site. I am sure others are having difficulty as well. Probably is what is keeping this piece from being moved. Best Regards, JustinG

    First ever purchase

    It looks like a nice Heer (army) dagger. On the blade you might find near the hilt, a maker mark or written letters; could you share that picture with us as well. This will help determine a maker for this piece. Congrats on your first piece . With "Heer Army dagger" you should be able to search all forums and search engines and look at images and such. Best Regards, JustinG
  3. As the title says, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your loved ones this holiday season. Wishing you all good health, happiness and success in the years to come. To you and yours! Cheers and Prost! Best Regards, JustinG
  4. A very tasteful display. Congratulations. I was curious how the gorget was worn I had assumed it would have been much like the Feldgendarmerie. Nice job. Best Regards, JustinG
  5. Greetings, Welcome. You posted this in the imperial section. This is a EK2 from the 2nd world war. Along with a pendant flag. The book is one of Robert Ley who was the head of the German labor front. (DAF) Best Regards, JustinG
  6. A fine piece. Best Regards, JustinG

    Patriotic pencil Hindenburg.

    Wow, interesting item. Best Regards, JustinG
  8. You can post on the sales page of this forum. Actually, there is several places. Abebooks is a good site. There is nothing offensive on the cover so I think you will not have any issues with ebay if you so choose to sell it there. best regards, JustinG

    help w KC

    IMHO, It looks like a small micro 800 S&L copy, The Date size is extremely small. This is a single core cross which is not appropriate and makes me believe this is a copy. I share your skepticism. Best Regards, JustinG
  10. You will notice the photo above, there doesn't appear to be any Narvik shield on him. But he has it prominent in the photo of Reinhold Eckardt. This could also be a Reinholdt. I love how you tried to do your own research before. Could you share the source of your references? The campaign shields were symbols of honor, I can't imagine that anyone would choose not to have that shield prominently displayed on every service uniform. This is just my observation. Thanks, JustinG

    Help with Knights Cross!

    Well, I guess I'll be the first and say that this is not what I would expect to see with a period made Ritterkreuz. First off, the stamping looks like it is trying to be a S&L 4. However, from the photos you shared, the core is a 1 piece construction. This is not found on any RK regardless of maker. Would you do me a favor, would you obtain a picture where the suspension ring is placed and on the metal loops, there appears to be a stamping number within the loop; I can barely make this out but it is present. Can you ask for detailed shot of that please? Check out the thread here: You will see on all these crosses, that there is a fine seam, these were typically 3 part constructed pieces. Yours seems like it is a single piece (No seam) William Kramer (AllIKnew) posted a great picture showing that seam for the S&L piece. With how expensive these awards can be, I am glad you asked before putting down a huge chunk of money. Please next time post to the appropriate forum. You will have better luck getting an answer and the right people with the knowledge to give you the best and quick response. Best Regards, JustinG
  12. What is the case size? Just trying to see how big an award this is? Thanks for sharing. JustinG
  13. In the next page, the question was asked what the shield with the "S" and crossed swords is. Here is a great thread explaining this very thing. https://asmic.org/forum/index.php?topic=87.0 Best Regards, JustinG
