Are you saying you're expecting SH3 to be cheaper if the swatiskas are not displayed?

Sorry, but I doubt that this is going to happen.

no sorry, I'm looking for reproductions of the 1957 reissue of german wwii medals which had the swastika removed.

Ah, okay - hm, where do you come from. We have "militia"-markets here sometimes, selling medals and stuff. I'm quite confident you'l find something like that on these occasions.

And did you try ebay http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

why on earth would you want reissued debadged german medals?
i mean even if you do live in germany,you are allowed to collect medals with a collectors permit?

i have quite a good collection from germany a total of 6 or so medals including
iron cross 1 and 2 knights cross,pilots badge,cavarly badge and the pride of my collection is an SS ring,plus some others,,,i do also have some allied stuff aswell,just to keep things in perspective.
i hope to be able to retire off that ring somedayhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What's wrong with collecting denazified medals?

I am involved with WPL, and it is our policy there not to use the swastika. I was thinking up some prizes for a contest I am thinking about, I thought the reissued 1957 would make a good prize, and still be in keeping with our policy.

I could use the 1870 and/or 1914 Iron Crosses, and was considering the Grand Cross for the Knights Cross.

nothing wrong with collecting chicken bones either,cant see you making any profit out of it thoughhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
seriously i was curious,,,didnt know they were popular.
didnt really know about the forums policy on nazi stuff and i know it can still stir up trouble with some folk.
i play alot of WW2 stuff such as IL2, combat mission,SH2 etc etc and i just like historical content,to each his own
any offence incurred was not intended

@ ace: How much did you pay for the knight cross?

Not really interested in medals, but I found a replica of the u-boat badge in a street market.
According to the seller, it's currently produced in Poland.
