unknown Swastika ?

Article about: by Thanatos I feel if it was Finnish the icon would have been blue and the back ground white. Just a thought. Cheers Dave ....and the Swastika reversed.

    Hello Pavel,

    I was aware of Carsten but I guess I missed the info about him faking zinc pest. I have a few questions though...how can he replicate the zinc pest to make it continue to 'grow'? Is this man a chemist also!?

    Regardless of this fact...this piece is not a "hero" piece by any means. I still think it is either some piece of patriotic jewelry or something completely unrelated to the TR.

    But these are just my opinions...not saying that I am right!

    Although the 'zinc pest' idea works for zinc items - the swastika badge first posted
    is not made of it. If anyone noticed, the corrosion is green, which would indicate
    bronze or brass, and can be easily formed or worked up naturally over
    a few months or days with the right persuasion.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Hey guys, i could have sworn i have seen this colour scheme used before on an early membership badhe. I think that it is an early membership badge from a country such as the Netherlands...
    Thanks, Glen.

    hi chrys, i agree this item has no association or connection to carsten/ hero . in relation to his fake zinc pest , its not active/live zinc pest . but a surface applied fake coating . further information can be found on the WAF site . i can recall a thread on that site when i was a member there that highlighted his production of a CCC with fake zink pest , it was quite a convincing example....regards pavel

    "Again, the simple swastika stickpin worn by those who supported the agenda of the Nazi Party. This one is in blue enamel. Very nice!"
    Who know's really.Not me that's for sure.Could well be an pre 1930's "good luck" stick pin.
    Cheers all
