@all, very nice items you are showing here. Thank you very much!

@Eduardo,

very nice collection of boards. Shoulder boards are my favourites

But I'm sure that the pair in the middle in the top row of your first picture are fakes. I have also doubts in the pair of "N" boards and would like to see better pictures of the embroidery.

Here are some of my crossed anchor boards.

Best regards,
Andreas

Nice stuff!! Keep posting!

@ Eduardo: Woooaaaw, I like what I see! A KM kustenartillerie tunic is still on my wants list...

A question: Are the trousers of these uniforms different of the heer ones? Or can you use heer trousers on a coastal artillery tunic? Still learning about KM...

Thanks mate

About your question, trousers are the same but if you want to be very realistic you need a pair with KM depot stamps ... and the are really rare ... and expensive.

Even if I said that already, I must say "Thanks, Eduardo!". Your collection is an eternal inspiration for me. So many nice things. Unfortunately I don't have enough space for such display (does anybody have enough space for his collection ) but I'm always coming back to your photos to learn.

What else to say than : Great KA items in this thread...

Like Eduardo, I love the Marineartillerie, especially if I can find something in Field gray So here are a few from my collection. I noticed that Eduardo had an early Schiffchen with waffenfarbe, but it was mixed in with other parts of the uniform. Here is mine with the maker.

Artilleriemekaniker in feldgrau. Also an autographed picture of Walter Ohmsen after being awarded his Knights Cross for calling in fire on his command bunker at Normandy to get some pesky Americans off of it Note his RK is a converted EKII. One of the very few MA Officers to be awarded the RK

Hello guys,

This thread is running wel,
But there must be much more 'Kustenartillerie' in some collections out there.
So all collectors, show us your KM KA items.

Thanks,

OK, here is my really humble contribution to this thread.

As I only collect for a short time, not much to show in feldgrau, but hope it will come soon.

Some insignia:
