  1. Hello to all! I enquired about this badge in a separate thread, and another forum member suggested that I start a new thread to enquire about price, especially given that the pin and clasp for this badge is long lost. I am in Auckland, New Zealand. I have had a GWL Luftwaffe observers badge almost all of my life. The pin and clasps have broken off (and are long lost), but otherwise the badge looks to be in fair shape. The factory is GWL. Another forum member has confirmed that it is genuine. A New Zealand dealer has offered my US$320 for the badge. Could I please have your opinions (as experts) on whether that is a fair price for this piece, particularly given its broken condition? Many thanks for your time and expertise.

    Luftwaffe observer's badge - GWL

    Thank you very much for your expertise Seb (and thank you also Wolfgang). I have been offered US$320 for this by a New Zealand dealer. Is that a fair price?

    Luftwaffe observer's badge - GWL

    Thanks Wolfgang. Do you have any idea of the value of this item? (Let me know if that is not an appropriate question to ask on this forum). Unfortunately Gumtree has closed down in NZ! I note that I am not permitted to post a "for sale" ad in the marketplace section of this forum - are you able to advise on how I could do that (in case someone here is interested to buy?). Thanks.
  4. Hello to all! I am looking for some advice and I hope I have come to the right place. I am in Auckland, New Zealand. I have had a GWL Luftwaffe observers badge almost all of my life. My dad gave it to me in about 1980. To the best of my knowledge my Dad had it since the 1950's. The pin and clasps have broken off (and are long lost), but otherwise the badge looks to be in decent shape. The factory is GWL, which I understand (from internet research) to make the badge more desirable. Some photographs can be seen here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/66ojboqi010rnrr/AAA0GFyyYjTPmLJ1bajTFPiea?dl=0 I am fairly certain it is genuine, given its age, however of course I defer to your expertise on this, and if it is fake, I would like to know! I would like to sell this as it is surplus to requirements. However neither Ebay (nor the local equivalent) allow the listing of auctions for any item with a swastika. Are you able to advise: 1. Whether the item is genuine; and 2. How I should go about selling this? Many thanks in advance! [Edited to include photographs].
