Bernd .... Absolutely fascinating Items and Photos!

It is quite interesting to see that the Quality of German emblems and designs did no end with WW2, nor should they.

Loved those first 'Meister' boards, as you can't get much more elegant or colorful.

I see that "Police Green" is preserved. City and Region 'shields' are there, but they go back to the middle ages, I believe. The type of Eagle predates the TR. The shape of the Schleswig-Holstein Cap Badges reminds me of 'Prussian' types. All is quite fascinating.

(Your individual Photos are pretty TOPS! What camera are you using?)

The additional photos are very, very interesting as well. Txs, Dave/dblmed

Hi-Dave : Thanks for your kind comments . I do like all the colorful post-war Police items ; same with the DDR .Also got a collection of uniforms and visor caps of EAST AND WEST GERMANY . The camera I am using is a old disk Sony FD Mavica , 2.0 MEGA PIXELS ,that is great for close-up work ; the disk holds 30 to 31 photos .My son Douglas gave it to me years ago for Christmas . Nice present . Bernd .

Bernd .......Your Great Photos are as the result of your SKILL as the Photographer, rather than the Type of, or Pixel Size of a specific 'latest model' Camera! (We can all learn for your example).

You must have a very big basement (or a nearby warehouse) for the display of your extensive collection!!! Txs for Sharing & Educating... Dave/dblmed

Bernd,

I was looking through the pages for this posting and saw that you were looking for help identifying two older style Polizei hat badges. The one with the ship and whale/fish lokking object under the ship is from the city of Bremerhaven. The second badge with the v-shaped symbol and the arc on the top is from the city of Kiel in the state of Schleswig-Holstein. There is a 3 volume series of books from Germany, the Polzei Abzeichen set, which are a great resource for older items, the series covers three eras: Book 1 (start of Police -1918), Book 2 (1918-1945) and Book 3 (1945-1993). The author is Erich Radecke.

Bernd, You have a most amazing collection of postwar Police items.
Just a question - are You living in germany ?
I wonder cause I think it is very hard to get these items if You are from abroad.

And another question - are You collecting papers too ?
If yes, I could have something for You.
You can mail me

email@photosammler.de

Kind regards
Robert
