    Question Feldgendarmerie Gorget what do you think?

    Hi everyone, today I aquired this gorget and I personally think that it is not a good one.
    Never seen one with this backing material before and I don't like the markings.
    I hope you guys can tell me more. The eagle, lettres and buttons do glow in the dark though.
    I got it from an anitques dealer who said he'd pay me back if it wasn't original.

    I've not seen one with that colour backing and those maker marks either.

    Just another fake with bogus markings.
    Not worth anything!

    Can't say i'm in love with it. You might try sending the pics to John Telesmanich of Germanwarbooty.com, He seems to be somewhat of an expert on these gorgets.

    John will not make an original out of this fake.
    For those interested in gorgets, it is advised to buy the big format book:
    "Ringkragen und Brustschilder im Dritten Reich", 704 pages with over 1,500 photographs
    (weight about 2.0 kg). There is one pity: the book is in German, but the many photographs
    tell the story. The book was published in 2012.

    It is available from Jeff Clark in the USA: jclark7@cox.net
    Or for those in Europe at: VDM Heinz Nickel : VDM Heinz Nickel Verlag

    Eagle is messy, tabs on back are too chunky, stamps are poorly positioned. These were ALWAYS of good quality......

    Sorry, Dan

    Yeah that is what I thought, I'm glad that I was right.
