    They were French patriotic Vichy France supporters badges and pins. And, yes-they appear to be genuine.

    Would wearing that badge not mark you out as a target, or was Vichy really well supported ?

    I don't suppose that a member of the Maquis would like it much, but Petain and the Vichy Government Was the governing body of France at the time, so I don't imagine it was like putting a bullseye on your back. It would have been more dangerous openly wearing a Maquis badge on your person than a Vichy badge....until 1945, that is...
