The badge has a nice pin and hinge soldered to the reverse of quality silver metal and the finish now has been absorbed by the panzer badge giving a grey coloured appearance. Still nice to find a maker marked panzer badge that features in most textbooks on the subject.

(M1170) An Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1914 being of standard construction with a magnetic core and silver frame outer. The cross retains virtually all of its black painted finish and the silver frame has toned a dark colour which is not surprising, considering it is only a shade under 100 years! The core is held nicely between the silver sandwich and the ring on this example is maker marked but I cannot identify the number. Very nice to find.

GBP £50.00 (UK Pounds)

(M1225) A used and worn German Mother's Cross in Silver. The cross is complete with all its enamel with no damage although there is some staining to the silver plate on one of the arms of the rays.

(N915) A mid to late war Close Combat Clasp in Bronze in it's frail cardboard box of issue. The card case was originally a one piece construction, but this has split and been repaired.

The clasp is a mid to late war standard 1st pattern FLL clasp, with a separately soldered hinge and hook and magnetic back plate.

(P80) A 1957 Iron Cross 2nd Class. The cross is of standard construction with a separately blackened centre encompassed by two silver frames. The cross is non magnetic and I would put it at about 1960-1970's manufacture. The cross still has a nice bright frame and is of reasonably good quality. A scarce cross to acquire now.

SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP £75.00 (UK Pounds)

A very nice badge to find.

(N302)A group of unusual items being a set of Pipes manufactured during WWII still stuck on their original card. The pipes consist of 6 wood and bakerlite pipes, some with intricate bowl designs, others, plain. I believe the elastic that holds them in place has been replaced. Each pipe is maker marked and this corresponds to the card's maker. I cannot say whether these pipes would actually work now and are selling them as a curio as opposed to endorsing the use of them. Very unusual items. The card has the photograph of a Army soldier using a pipe. A very unusual item and a very interesting social history item. A great talking point.
