My Grandfather gave me some memorabilia that he brought back from WWII.
Here are some pictures. Do you guys think any of these old pins are worth anything. I assume they're worth a few bucks, but are any really rare or cooler than the rest.

He also gave me a Luger, and a P38. All matching numbers, nazi symbols, holster, ect. I can post pics if anyone is interested.

Also, I'm not looking to get rid of any of this stuff, just wanted a little info on them.

Sweet.
Yes, I imagine some of those are worth some bucks. Did you get any stories to go with them? How about the P08 and P38? And yes pictures would be awesome.

Lots of stories. He's still alive and doing great, so I still talk to him about it.

How do the P38 and Luger shoot?

I've never shot the P38, but the Luger shoots great. I shot the Luger when I was younger and didn't know any better, but I probably won't ever shoot it or the P38 again.

They're in really good condition and I would hate for something to happen to either one. I have lot's of guns, so I'm not pressed to shoot them.

Real stuff is very collectible. So many fakes out there though. Nice to see some of the true bringbacks.

I dig the bookend. Where'd he get that?

Curiosity got me doing some poking around, looks like the medal bar in the 2nd picture belonged to a WW1 vet.

The left one appears to be an Iron Cross 1st class.

The second looks like a Hindenburg Cross with swords

And the right appears to be a Hungarian War Medal 1914/18
