Default Some recent additions, 4 rivet GAB, L/53 GAB, IAB JB&Co

Hello Guys,

I picked up some good looking badge I would like to share. Lets first begin with the 4 rivet GAB. Finish is stunning on this one, one of the best I have seen ever.

Second is a very nice GAB makers marked L/53 (Hymmen). One of the first german medals I ever got was a Hymmen GAB, so these always are a bit special for me. Especially these days not that easy to find anymore.

Last but not least is this great IAB in silver makersmarked JB&Co. IMO super hard to find with the makers mark.

I hope you guys all like them, and that you are all enjoying your weekends !

Chris

Hi Chris,

All very nice beauties and hard to find! That 4-Rivet GAB is probably the best one I have ever seen, just amazing condition. Now I know who beat me to it on the estand ;( Very glad it found a good home though, congrats on some very nice additions my friend.

Tom

Chris,
All very, very nice badges but have to say I like the marked JB&Co the most even if it’s condition isn’t as good as the others. It took me many years to find one as they are very rarely seen for sale.
