  1. Hi Guys

    Whats your thought about this one? I bought it thinking it was an Austrian helmet but it seem the color is wrong, any ideas?

     

    Thanks

  2. Another item up for review. So far I dont think its correct but its hard to find image of genuine 1st class awards. 

     

    1, The eagles claws are not very noticable as seen on 2nd class awards, here they seem more like part of the wreath.

    2, Swaz is also not so defined and looks a bit small.

    3, The ribbon loop resembles the 1957 award loop

    4. Rivets dont match, they are punched unlike the others I have seen, I have seen one -57 award with the same rivets.

     

    Info that checks out

    1. Number of feathers on wings is five oposed to 4 on 2nd class awards

    2. Number of lines(logs) is 10 under wreath, instead of eight as of a 2nd class award.

     

     

    So is anyone here specialized in these and would like to help me out?

     

    Any pictures of originals would be greatly appreciated!

     

    I cant find any discussion threads on these so if there is any please post them here or drop me a PM.

     

    Thanks

  3. Thought I share some photos from this impressive book. This is one of the 10 books I decided to keep from a big lot of over 150 books I bought a few month back.

    Enjoy this great artwork

    And I think they could be original as many of them has a perforated lower part as they would have when in the LW Calendar

    I'll attache some images on how they would have looked if complete in calendar

  7. Got these in the mail today. If I understand correctly these are pages from Luftwaffe week calendar that was sent to Officers of the Luftwaffe.

    I don't know if these are reprints or originals

    They are very nice either way

    Best regards
