  1. What is the case size? Just trying to see how big an award this is? Thanks for sharing. JustinG
  2. 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

    Not an average Drivers License.

    Great items you are posting. Very interesting. Nice finds. Best Regards, JustinG
  4. Hi, I am working on blending different photos. I had taken this shot while in Munich in 2010. I had remembered seeing the wartime photo of the Marienplatz. Thanks for looking. It was fun and time consuming. Best Regards, JustinG
  5. It's been a while so I thought I'd post another. A light Kreuzer with RKF merge.
  6. A nice piece from a marine hospital in Bergen Norway. It was in operation from August 1940 until October 1944. A beautiful 16cm by 16cm tile.
  7. Greetings, Well a month ago, I did not have a collection but thanks to making a few inquiries, I have amassed several fine pieces that are on their way to my collection in Alaska. I am indeed happy to add these to my collection. Regards, JustinG Köln, Königsberg, Nurnberg, Gneisenau, Admiral Scheer, Deutschland.

    Sturmtrupp Austrian badge

    I don't know the exact reasons. He has been listing many of his items. I can't say for sure, but perhaps, he is slowly liquidating his collection. Something we or our loved ones will eventually do. Best Regards, JustinG
  10. Greetings, I have recently acquired this piece and I am eager to share. The pin is removed and there are holes to help the soldier affix this to his tunic. I hope you like it. The skull is one of the fiercest. Probably this and the the Skull on the Antipartisan badge (TR era) are probably the coolest (appearance wise) IMO. Hope you like.

    Dead Mans Corner Museum + D-Day Experience

    I remember seeing "Band of Brothers" and many of the troops who had lost their lives still had their dress uniforms and such at the cleaners getting pressed or cleaned. This kind of reminded me a bit of that with all the uniforms in this standup locker, all pressed and cleaned.... Sadly, The original owners have faded into history. Thanks for sharing.

    Nice. I have seen the badge but never in wear. Thanks for sharing.
  15. Don't accidentally push the trigger. Whole new meaning for "got a light?"

    Unknown Helmet?

    Like how you artificially aged the decal. Looks nice. There are some great helmet artists who have done some incredible designs on lids. If your artistically inclined? https://gmic.co.uk/topic/64423-painting-stuff/ Best Regards, JustinG
  17. Thanks for looking at my collection. I wish to say that I am going to put up items from my collection and share them with you fine individuals. If you have an item that you would like to share or a question on a particular piece that is not in my collection, I humbly ask that you do not post it here. Please start a separate thread. Comments, if you have other questions or requests are appreciated. I am posting this because on several other sites, others have jumped in and posted their items or asked opinions about originality of an item like a Mützenband or a Schiffswappen. I thank you for looking at my collection. Greetings, Well, It is about time to share some of my collection. I recently acquired this grouping from another long time collector. I am grateful to him for giving me the opportunity to acquire this. This ship has a well chronicled history. A unit that operated very successfully despite being up against incredible odds. If you have never heard of this ship or it's exploits, there are several good books out there to check out. On the lifebouy, the words SMS Emden are written in Gray lettering. it is very faint and is difficult to photo but I assure you it says S.M.S Emden. Thanks, JustinG

    Some local newspapers!

    I applaud your efforts to get them scanned and have a digital record of these. Paper, photos, items like this will only fade, and or break down until no longer readable or handled even. Really wish there was a better archive that members who have various items of interest but are rare, could upload and have credit for archiving that but be for the community and history as a whole. I have reached out to the Bundesarchiv but had not had any response. I have some personal items and really stellar photos that I feel might be a one of a kind piece with some historical significance, but they haven't gotten back to me. Best Regards, JustinG

    Collection of JustinG

    I have some great news. I was able to secure my last U boat related tally. The Unterseebootstender Mosel. With this tally I have an example of each flottille, tender, begleitschiff test command, and Schule. I am very happy. The search is over. Best Regards, JustinG

    Some local newspapers!

  21. Congratulations. They turned out great. Thanks for sharing your process and progress. Best Regards, JustinG

    Helmut Weitze update

    Best of luck. Did he share what the price was? That would be quite the investment, something that you must truly love because I don't think you would be able to sell for what he is probably asking for it. An impressive piece to be sure. Best of Luck. JustinG
  23. So, Since the KM forum has been quiet for a bit, I thought I would post some photos of my insignia collection. Thanks, JustinG
  24. Yeah, I must have missed that header. Are you in South Eastern Pennsylvania or Maryland yourself? Just curious if this made it to a relative perhaps far away before heading to the antique shop where you acquired it. Best Regards, JustinG
