UPDATE:  It appears that the top item in the photo is a Peaked cap badge and the lower item is a Luftwaffe Civilian Employee badge.

It turns out my father had two cousins who fought in WWII.  (More on that as I learn more.)  They sent back to my Uncle  items they picked up during the war.  My Unlce has given these items to me.  I am trying to learn more about what they are.  Here is a photo of the first piece.

  1. Not sure about the other two Dave, but the item on the right is an Idaho quarter minted here in the US around 2007. It’s worth about 25 cents (regardless of condition). the fact that you say they got these in Germany during the war makes me question the authenticity as the war was fought in the 40’s the coin was minted 3 years ago. I’m just sayin.
