(M236) A Badge for the Probationary Members of the Freikorps Oberland. The badge is a triangular shaped blue enamel badge with a white and yellow edelweiss to the centre. A similar example can be found in the Niemann price guide Vol. 3 on page 98. This example although the enamal is there, shows heat damage and wear and tear. Still a nice scarce badge to acquire. Rated at 220 euros in 2008, the badge is priced for condition.

GBP 60.00 (UK Pounds)

(M327) A Nice Early Near Mint example of a General German Automobile Organisations Bronze Sports Achievement Badge. The badge shows the lettering DAAK with an eagle to the centre around an oakleaf wreath. The badge is in virtually mint condition and came in an original gasoline packet with the makers name Josef Bergs and Co. which was probably why the medal is in such nice condition still as it was purchased wrapped in this. The quality of the badge is excellent and it is of solid construction with more of a jewellery pin and hook as shown in the Niemann book.

GBP 125.00 (UK Pounds)

(M326) A German Marine Flanders Cross of die cast zinc. The cross appears from my point of view, to be a replacement item manufactured in the 1930's, 40's or 50's. I feel it is more likely to be from the 40's as it is of grey zinc construction and has no gilding applied that can be seen. The cross is of nice quality, and has no makers marks. The cross comes complete with a new piece of ribbon and priced with this in mind.

GBP 45.00 (UK Pounds)

(N868) A Prussian State Fire Brigade Service Badge issued from 1934-36. The award is maker marked for Prussian State mint as well as silver marked. The award was superceded and replaced by the Fire Service cross and hence is quite scarce. In vgc to near mint.

GBP 150.00 (UK Pounds)

(N884) A Fredrich Augustus Medal being in very nice condition. The award retains virtually all of it's original plated finish. This with a number of other items, was recently acquired from a Deumer sample board and shows the company was still manufacturing WWI awards during the Third Reich period.

GBP 35.00 (UK Pounds)
