Original German WWII Group of High End Replica Awards - Set of 6
Original Replica Items: Only One Set of 6 Available. After the end of WWII, USGI's brought home a multitude of German WWII items, including all types of medals, awards, and other memorabilia. By the 1950s, there was a booming collector's market for these items, and many dealers were making trips to Germany to bring back masses of militaria for the market.
As prices rose and supplies fell, it was somewhat inevitable that replicas would be made, as many were able to locate original dies for casting, and the local areas were happy for the business. Some were obviously fakes, poorly made reproductions with many flaws, which were sometimes comical in appearance. Others take a more discerning eye. We have had our experts examine these thoroughly, and they all are high end replica items.
This set consists of:
- 2 X Replica German WWII Panzer Badges (Panzerkampfabzeichen), both solid back, with one in Bronze and one in Silver
- 2 X Replica German WWII Infantry Assault Badges (Infanterie-Sturmabzeichen), both hollow back, one in bronze and one in Silver.
- 1 X Replica German WWII Heer Flak Artillery Badge (Heeres-Flak Abzeichen)
- 1 X Replica German WWII Luftwaffe Pilot's Badge (Pilotenabzeichen)
These look great, and would be perfect to spruce up a uniform, or fill a hole in your collection at a much more economical price. Many of these are so old that they are themselves now collectors items. Ready to display!
