I used to collect German Submarine Badges

Postby bilboleslie » 13 Feb 2017 21:42

... but I don't any more. All of these have been in my hands for 15 years, most for 20 years or longer. I'm going to sell them all to pick up something else of interest. Any suggestions on values would be much appreciated. If you want to give opinions, you may wish to wait until all 11 badges have been loaded. It breaks my heart to sell #5, which is just gorgeous.

I believe 3 is a WWII German petty officer's badge.

Nice clean lapel pin, earlier, I think.

My favorite. If I could figure out how to not have the photo resizer rotate them 90 degrees, I'd be happier.

French dock worker's badge, one of two that I have. Seldom seen.

Modern, I think, USA submarine dolphins.

Heavy silver pin. That's the last of them.

Will be replacing these with an 1862 Civil War musket by Colt.

Any ideas on values? Any of the badges look "wrong" to you?

This is a tough audience. 155 people look at my post, and zero give opinions.

well, I came here to take a look. I assume that most people did so too. I have no idea how much they are worth or anything. I think there are different forums that deal with such stuff or maybe even a sub-forum here.
All the best.
