  11. Missing is the symbol on the bows deck - which can be seen in original photos, even on the wreck this is still visible.
  12. These medals, like all other SS items are highly faked. The originals were either bronze or later iron or zink with a black finish, they should have the teardrop shaped ribbon ring, as in the picture you posted. The ribbon looks original, whether the medal is original or not, I cannot say, it certainly does not look old, the quality of the piece seems good, but that is no criterium. You would have to get some qualified expertises on this item. I remember a friend of mine had a definite original in the late 1960s, I don't know what he paid for it, it had no ribbon, but did have the correct p

  15. Treasure Bunker Shop. One rule on this forum is not to make any reference or advertising for anyother shops, dealers or their sources. See rules section.
  16. It shouldn't been too hard to find an Eastern Front medal, there are still plenty available. Best to get an example with the manufacturer's number on the ring, the prices of these can vary. Try and post a few pictures of your new Iron Cross when you get, so that you can get a few more opinions on it. Maybe someone can identify the manufacturer even without a number on.
  17. These four photos were just received from the granddaughter of Otto Dierssen, who served in Husaren-Regiment 15. One of the photos however, shows soldiers from another regiment, identifiable as Mecklenburgisches Dragoner-Regiment 17 (Ludwigslust).
