I found these in a flea-market in Bucharest. Opinions on their authenticity are welcome.

All post war items... the buckle I am not sure about .... the RZM is added - buckle could be good .

The Knight's Cross is of course postwar - it's a Bundeswehr replacement medal, hence the oakleaves. But is it genuine?
My expectation was that the buckle was genuine and the ring was fake. I had no opinion about the Dresden medal, whatever it is. I'd like it to be genuine because I like the design.
Anyone else have a view?

Sorry Adam ... the KC set is not genuine 57 re-issue- only a recent cheap knockoff .
The Dresden pin is a 1937 vet tinnie - hollow with small pin only . No srew back . Uncommon tinnie - may have taken an original and destroyed !
Some one in England has been putting these disks out ... most pieces are total fakes but he also has masacred originals including EK1s with this fake
post and disk . Having the buckle checked .

Adam,
All this stuff is very bad!.... as Douglas 9 said, the Knight's Cross is a very poorly done, modern reproduction of a "57" version, the Golden Oak leaves and swords with diamonds was only awarded once and these aren't them!.... (or a legit copy). The NSKOV screwback is entirely fake.. NEVER would have a screwback and look at that horribly done eagle swastika & horrible RZM/SS markings! The buckle is reproduction also, poorly detailed and would NEVER have that type "catch" on the inside or, again, those really bad RZM/SS markings (on an Army buckle, no less!). The Skull ring is equally a clunker (fake!).

If you picked these up, you should have known better, you've been around awhile now... None of this stuff would have any resale value. Sorry, but these are really bad fakes....
John G.

Thanks gentlemen. I found them in a flea market in Bucharest, so I didn't have any great expectations. They didn't cost much so I'm not bothered. I've never claimed any expertise on this stuff.

I have an Anti-Partisan badge that I got from my grandfather. I am pretty sure it is real.

Sadly it is still a fake. The weave of the borders (such as I can see them) and the bullion embroidery is wrong.
