Default The Fate Of My Oakleaves, Swords & Diamonds

Lost, stolen, or mislaid in the post between Heathrow and Hamburg recently.

Germany 1939-1945. Oakleaves Swords & Diamonds Set
OLS&D set for the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross, made by Otto Klein of Hanau. In 935 hallmarked silver, with the trade mark of Otto Klein, zirconia or paste stones. Assembled post-war. 14.7 grams. Quite stunning. In excellent condition.

If you see or are offered them please contact me, thank you

Keith

Sent by Royal Mail using their International Tracked and Sign service, insured but sadly not for the full value.

Thank you for reading this post and keeping watch ...

Enjoy the hobby, Keith

I would imagine it cannot be located. It happens. What can you do? you can complain and rant and shout but if its gone it is gone. Now the i As the full value was not insured Royal Mail will only pay out the declared value.

May have been confiscated by German customs as it is illegal to send Nazi stuff to German. Have you tried contacting them to see if they will return the Oak Leaves to you? Jim
