    Hi John,

    There are genuine badges out there that were used at the Peenemunde site, but this isn't one of them, it's a fake. The real badges are totally different in appearance than this one which crops up quite regularly at auctions.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned;
    I was looking at some stuff on some auction sites and this junped out of the woodwork. I had never seen or heard of such a thing before.

    Terrible quality-note the shape of the swastika and the ridiculous double stamping of the numbers. Save your money...

    And the red appears to be paint? Surely they'd have only used enamel. And since Peenemünde was a SECRET research station, it seems pretty funny to suggest they'd advertise on metal badges, no? LOL
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    The genuine ones i've seen are just a plain circular disc with a hole punched in them and the 3 digit numbers stamped crudely in the centre, nothing else. My guess is they were for the slave workers. They closely resemble what's known over here as a 'Miner's Tally' or even the name tag a dog has hanging from it's collar. I believe they were ground dug at the site and sold by the auctioneers Bonhams a few years back.

    Regards, Ned.
