The unworn 1. Stufe patch (no swords) is consistent with the "accepted" type, with the caveat that it's always preferable to have provenance when it comes to cloth. The 2. Stufe and 3. Stufe patches...

Hi Ben,

Of course, don't throw it out!

Two things. First, regarding P&L, the announcement in Uniformen-Markt from August 1, 1941 states that "the permission for the firm Petz & Lpremz to sell...

Hi Ben,

Sure, we know from primary sources (Uniformen-Markt, July 1941) that Schickle's stock was sold off by the IHK Pforzheimer with quality check by the LDO (both organizations were being...

I'm not saying that L/10 Minesweeper is a cast fake, and I'm not saying (for sure) that it was refinished; I'm just saying that it's finished in a uniquely atypical manner and that...

Hi Thunderdutch,

It looks like a good zinc A.G.M.u.K. Blockade Breaker stickpin. In fact, it's the type that should go with the case that you posted in your other thread here:...

That's a good point. I don't actually own these so can't comment definitively, but it's possible that the "Type 2" case isn't as dark as the "Type 1". (Either that or it's all differences in...

Hi Ben,

Sure, your point is well taken; just because a badge is an anomaly doesn’t automatically mean it’s been messed with.

That’s a thought. Maybe the catch was repaired and then the whole badge dipped in something?

Yes, you occasionally see the Schickle-attributed Minesweeper badge with a gilt reverse, and funnily enough the Kai Winkler example has the same internal cutout flaws on the right side of...

Hi Cliff,

No, never a silver base metal. Always Tombak. Are you saying with the badge in hand that the base metal still looks silver coloured, ie. it’s not just the photos?
