Original German WWII Group of High End Replica Awards - Set of 8
Original Replica Items: Only One Set of 8 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), one hollow back silver, and one 50 engagement badge.
- 2 X Replica German WWII Clasps to the Iron Cross Second Class 1939 (Spange zum Eisernen Kreuz) - clip type that attaches to the ribbon
- 2 X Replica German WWII Clasps to the Iron Cross First Class 1939 (Spange zum Eisernen Kreuz) - pinback type that attaches to the uniform
- 1 X Replica German WWII Luftwaffe Paratrooper Fallschirmjäger Badge
- 1 X Replica German WWII Luftwaffe Observer Badge (Beobachterabzeichen)
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!
