EcoEstate posted a topic in U.S. Orders, Awards & DecorationsHi, I acquired these 3 WWII military badges a while back, and I thought that all three were authentic. Someone recently told me that all of these pieces that are authentic have raised lettering on the back, instead of engraved. And also that the pin back should only open about half way instead of flipping all the way back. My large Nav pin does have these characteristics. The gunner pin opens all the way, and also has engraved "sterling" on the back. My small nav pin only opens half way, but the sterling mark is also engraved. Can anyone help me figure this out? Thanks! From top to bottom: Photos 1&2 = Small Nav Photos 3&4 = Large Nav Photos 5&6 = Gunner
Ocad posted a topic in The Collector's InnThis is my personal website based around my WW2 uniform and headgear collection, in the form of an on-line museum. The collection is mainly focused on WWII but does have examples from other eras. The main categories are Great Britain and the USA, but I also have "exhibits" from France and Germany, such as helmets and gas masks. I have also added some interesting information to help research and referencing, as well as book reviews and other info which collectors may find useful and interesting. You can find the website here: http://www.theocadcollection.com/ Thanks for looking!
