This is the limit and extent of the examination in this regard.
With Regard to Militaria, badges in particular. I have spent a great deal of money on reference material and spend an inordinate amount of time on research to establish the authenticty of the offerings to the very best of my ability. I will state known flaws if I see or know about them.
