Question Australian Slouch Hat Green Eyelets WW2 or later????

Hi team,

Apologies if this has been answered before via another thread. I have a pretty bare slouch with green eyelets. I’m just wondering if that is a WW2 production trait. The pug is missing as is the liner and chin strap. The brim has an covered edge. There is no push button stud - clip only.

And an unrelated question - did CARR provide studs for WW1 slouches as well as WW2?

Haenel Partial Rohm

Hi All,
I just aquired this one, before I go into all the details let me say how difficult it is to photograph blades!!!! but with my camera and loupe I did my best for you all, this is a Haenel Partial Rohm with the tip broken off, before everyone goes UGHHHHH what I learned is that quite a few Rohms have this issue and some choose to have the blade re-tipped, after speaking to Mr Wittman about this he informed me it is best to preserve the history and to leave it be, adding that the value holds the same, I learned that for some SA men breaking the tip was a way to futher disgrace the honor dagger along with removing Rohms name, an old Teutonic tradition as he stated. The dagger itself is in great condition, the scabbard still has nearly all of its original laquer, all of the screws and tang nut are unturned and not messed with, the fit is perfect, the Suhl step lower crossguard is evident along with the proper groupe mark for this sort of dagger of Sa, the blade is nice but shows alot of runner marks, this one was shown off alot!!!! it still remains clean with visable crossgrain, the dedication etch is proper and original, and you can still see a tiny bit of the name, the Haenel maker mark is ever so slighty lowered when compared to a normal Haenel proving to be an original Rohm. Please feel free to comment and thank you for looking!!!

Ostmedaille Help

Firstly sorry if i’m posting in the wrong place - still finding my way around this site but everyone has been very welcoming!

I am a young collector and this is the second medal i have purchased, from Phoenix Militaria in London - Ivor was nice enough to let me photograph a few of his items and we had a nice chat,

But i have my reservations about the Ostmedaille i purchased
can anyone help ? i’m assuming it is not zinc because there are no bubbles present.
The surface looks sort of strange and scratched ?

Any help much appreciated, i know it is a very common medal.
