The clasp is an AGMUK example and has its blackened magnetic backplate intact. The badge is textbook in every way, with the hook countersunk and the hinge cast in with main construction and a nice tapered pin is fitted. The backplate is crimped into the vertical sides. The lettering is nice and clear. The clasp is one of the best examples we have seen in a fair while and therefore scarce to find in this condition.

GBP 395.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS187) A Nice and Very Rare example of the Italian Training Badge in Germany. The badge consists of two oakleaf sprigs behind two crossed swords with a central fasces and a swastika. The badge has a quality feel to it with a nice pin fixing to the reverse. The badge appears to be silver and is therefore for junior NCO's. The badge has nice workmanship. A similar example is shown in the book "Foreign Legions of the Third Reich Vol 2 " by David Littlejohn on page 248.

GBP 999.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS193) An Austrian enamelled Tradition Cap Badge which appears to be for an Auxillary type Cruiser. The badge is an oval shape and has around the edge, three emblems, and the wording PROFUGIS AUXILIUM 1914 1916. And a ship as a central design. The badge is in superb quality and condition.

GBP 25.00 (UK Pounds)

On the eagle's chest in red and silver, is a separate coat of arms and there is a crown to the top. The yellow edging enamel shows some age cracking but nothing too serious. There is no maker that I can see to the badge. The badge appears to have had a screw back fitting at some time and then converted to a pin fixing. The badge is also of very fine quality workmanship and has had the black enamel eagle soldered to the yellow wreath. Very nice to find.

GBP 40.00 (UK Pounds)

In good condition other than the lack of pins etc. Priced for lack of fixings etc.

GBP 75.00 (UK Pounds)

GBP 95.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS226) An Iron Cross 2nd Class for 1939 being a nice used example with the frame soldered up although the bottom arm of the cross is starting to split, where it may have been dropped at some time. This is only detectable by a magnifying glass, so not bad at all. The cross is the rare rounded 3 type and as usual, it is unmarked. In one of the latest publications, it states that this may well be a Deschler cross but this is unconfirmed. Priced for condition.

GBP 225.00 (UK Pounds)

SORRY I AM ON HOLD GBP 30.00 (UK Pounds)

(CS200) A 1st October Medal with a Prague Castle Bar affixed to the ribbon. The prague castle bar is a nice standard example with the big broad bladed prongs. The bronzed medal is a good countermatch in colouring to the bar. The award is on its original ribbon which shows that the prague bar was added sometime after the medal was given out, this is my own theory, as it has pierced through both parts of the ribbon. The ribbon is unsewn at the top, although there was a pin fitting that has rusted and has been removed, more in line with the continental pin fixings seen on Belgium/Dutch medals etc. Nice to find.

GBP 99.00 (UK Pounds)
