Can't believe I haven't posted pictures of my little collection, so here's a few.

At the moment I have only German and British, but I'm going to expand my collection to French, Belgian, Soviet and any medals issued during WW2. :D

 

A nice little medal, citation, tag and box found in a charity shop.

A set of 4 with citation and box address to Webster W.F

Single WW2 Stars. The 1935-45 Medal was another Charity shop find.

Hi Tizipi, great little collection of medals there, some great finds love the Pacific star, not many of them handed out.

And I've never seen a Auschwitz Cross before. :thumbsup:

Cheers guys.

KVK is stamped 6. Not sure what make it is though.

When I saw the Auschwitz Cross I knew I had to have it. Im planning on making a memorial display with them and taking some repo camp patches etc, because the real things are impossible to get and cost a fortune!

I did the light test and the burn test. The thread burned instantly and the ribbon didn't glow under the black light.

Will this test work for British medal ribbons too?

Only, an original Battle of Britain bar would be hard to obtain. I have a copy. I would be carefull about the burn test. Ribbons are getting shorter and shorter.
