Guys, I am getting rid of some stuff that has been sitting in a box for years. Three of those items are WWII Nazi medals and insignia. I know very little about them. Attached are two pics. If any of you are collectors, can you tell me about these and the value? I know the following about them... Top Left is a War Wound Badge - marked 30 on the back under the pin which makes it manufactured by Hauptmünzamt in Wien. Bottom left is a Panzer Cap Insignia- UNISSUED. The right one is a War Merit Cross w/swords. This is all I know other than they are original. Any help?

Theres a few collector spots that could help.

the rash of fakes in the past few years hasn't helped the militaria dept much.

unfortunatly the merit crosses are very common and as HK said the extreme number of fakes have driven the value of the reals ones down. The other items you have there are the interesting pieces. I would search for auctions of these on ebay and add them to your watch list and see where the auction goes. This is a good way to check the current market value of items like this.
