He also had this German cross in gold cloth patch. He wanted $125 but I passed.

I thought it was bad.

thanks again Robert

The cloth German Cross is original IMO.

Hi Robert,
The cloth DKiG is a good example. The West Wall is a poor casting IMO.

The Germanic SS Sports Rune is an obvious fake, as is the Westwall medal. The German Coss is a nice original. The 2nd Class clasp appears to be an original B.H. Mayer.

Thanks again guys for the help.

is the infantry badge ok?

Yes... the west wall medal looks awful. But, I didn't think people would fake a $20 medal. Now I know better.

I asked him to bring the cloth German cross in gold and the U-Boat badge he showed me a couple weeks ago.
