Hello C2etalon, Welcome to AHF ;

Helmet ; It is an original M-35, reissued by the spanish army ( new rivets have been added for the chinstrap ), fake decals, not service in Germany

Pennants ; Both are fakes, especially the one of the Götz von Berlichingen Division.

Nazi Pins ; Better pictures will be necessary to analyze SS Supporters pin badge ( but it smells bad )

Marksmanship Army lanyard and EK II looks well
I can not say to you nothing about the leather coat (in favor or opposing)

Leather coat not German WW 2, all the enamel pins are no good, the lanyard and Iron Cross 2nd cl. are o.k., The swastika pennant is real, called a stick pennant, but of minimal value.

Do you mean actually sold as reproductions or passing them for real? The yellow Delta Int. is worth about what it sold for in the 70's. Someone posted a page from their catalog with that pennant in it on here a while back ... I think it was Mark or John I can't remember who.

Wow. Thank you so much for the info. I’m assuming this was a late 1940s-1950s item?

More late 60s early 70s. Remember, pre reference books, pre computer, pre dealer websites. Back then you either mailed a self addressed stamped envelope or/and a dollar for a mimiographed list. These fooled many a collector back then.....
