My Collection for Review

Post by FreemanOrrin1942 » 10 Sep 2019 03:15

Hello guys I have slowly gathered these pieces over the past few months. I want a more professional opinion on these pieces if you guys could help me out. Can you tell me the estimated value and if they are original. Thanks again for your guys help. Calloway

FreemanOrrin 1942,

1939 Black Wound badge.... $30./45.

WW 1 Iron Cross 2nd cl., No ring or ribbon..... $35./50.

WHW donation pin...... $18./25.

1914/18 Honor Cross w/swords....... $20./25.

1936 May Day tinney...... $20./24.

Prices are always very subjective.... The WW 1 Iron Cross would be twice as much with the original ring and ribbon... But keep at it..... Don't over pay or get burnt with fake stuff if possible. We'll be happy to help if we can.

W.H.W. was the Winter Hilft Werk Organization originally for charity work for the poor in winter, later during the war It became more of general relief for the poor, displaced, widows of the fallen, etc. The are thousands of different types of WHW donation pins....many non-political from flowers, birds, costumes, clowns, etc... and many that are political or military oriented. Most are inexpensive compared to other pins from this period.... But most don't have swastikas so they are unappreciated or overlooked by some.
