    These are fine IMO !

    Usually the silver coating is worn completely from the police bagde at center
    leaving a total grey zinc finish.

    You're referring to the above gold-looking police badge in this group and not the one that I have posted here below. Is this one below authentic? I assume what you're saying about it retaining the silver is a good thing as far as condition.

    Thanks, Steve

    Hi, Adam !

    Both little pins are good. The little silver police badge in the middle with "1942"
    on a banner is the one i was reffering to, not the cap badge. Cap badge above is
    aluminum and will corrode over time rather than tarnish or rust or have
    the finish wear off.

    The little police badges were finely plated "silver" as were all the zinc coins of
    the war-time period originally, and a lot of pins and badges too.
    ( I have two coins in "AU" condition, with some plating left. Almost every
    single 1, 5, and 10 Pfenig coin you see today is grey zinc because the original
    coating is worn completely away.............)







    Regards,








    Steve.
