German Military Metal Insignias refer to badges, pins, or emblems made of metal that are used to denote rank, unit, or branch within the German military. These metal insignias can come in a variety of shapes and designs, including stars, eagles, and shields. The designs are typically specific to a particular branch of the military, such as the army, air force, or navy, and are used to distinguish members of each branch. The insignias are worn on uniform, berets, or other clothing items to identify the individual's rank and branch of service. The metal insignias are an important part of the military tradition in Germany and are typically highly prized by collectors.
In our condition standards, New (Surplus) stands for items that are originally issued to military personnel but weren’t used before.
In most cases, the military issues spare items for everything they can, in case soldiers must have to change their lost or damaged pieces of equipment or clothing. After 2-4 years (depending on the country) after issuing equipment to personnel, the military changes them to new ones to renew main and spare personnel equipment, even if spare ones weren’t used at all, so that is how unused military quality items comes to our warehouse.
Expected condition issues:
- Warehouse odor (long storage).
- Dust marks (long storage).
- Items will come with our packaging.
- „Expected issues“ - might appear on 1 of 10 items.
- „Rare issues” - might appear on 1 of 50 items.
- Written condition issues don‘t mean that items must have them.
