    Default 205th inf.div unit insignia - "mushroom"

    You see these turn up often on the online auctions - but are they original???

    They seem to be dug specimens but I'm even getting suss of corroded badges these days ( cynic that I am ) as so little can be trusted when there seems to be a glut of them.......

    Any thoughts guys?

ID:	699589These were all found by one of our members last year, this is from his ebay post
    ''Dug out near German bunker without soldier. This is very rare insignia badge awarded only to members of 205. I. D., it is made from same zinc as most of German awards. Men who had been awarded with insignia badges had award document on it and Soldbuch entry. Found near Skrunda on last postitions of 205. Infanterie Division (Mushroom). ''

    He also had a coloured version, ie little 'rust'
