The first prëwar badge left is known as the Black Sun (in the SS castle of the Wevelsburg) and also as a WHW item .
Yes, I agree the last brooch with the spirals reminds of the "Westwall jewellery" , but it can be older .

The brooch Black Sun and the brooch Odalah are my favourite.

My brooch, bought in Germany, is die stamped out , which you can see clearly. It is a simple made brooch .

On internet I found more or less the same brooch, also stamped out but! with a “SS”mark on the backside and a Otto Gahr box … imo not SS and not made by Otto Gahr.

Please let me know your opinion about this .

Looks like the guy with the pointed helmet has a broken sword, and the other guy is repairing it. Depending on the correct order of the three images, which seem to repeat, he either broke the sword fighting the dragon, or he had it repaired before he fought the dragon. Whatever, they are both very cool bracelets.

Nibelung story bracelet is Norwegian made by Elvik Co. (and probably marked 830s) and has nothing to do with TR period and was imo post WW2 made and can be easily found for sale.

On the other hand that runic bracelet is just amazing!

Thanks for all the compliments. The warrior bracelet has the owners name scratched on the back and her mother was from Norway. I had posted the bracelet before here, see for more info

Great info on the linked topic!! I can tell you that is not a piece you'd find in the US back then..

As mentioned similar made now or even that exact one copied.. but I wouldn't doubt that was a gift picked up while visiting the 'homeland' or sent to them as a present.
- Could be prewar to 1950 tops... Fabulous piece , great piece of workmanship

Come on,,,spotlight another one!

Thanks G, good observations. Another possibility is a family heirloom piece.

Here is another shot of the runic bracelet and an interesting mother's brooch style with s runes. The mark on reverse looks like a hausmark for a family
