Hitler Youth pin, doesn't look quite right

Article about: Hey guys, I was consigned this Hitler Youth pin. While it appears to have lots of wear, the "D" and "J" look wrong to me, skinnier, and more sloppily applied. Any thought

    Default Hitler Youth pin, doesn't look quite right

    Hey guys, I was consigned this Hitler Youth pin. While it appears to have lots of wear, the "D" and "J" look wrong to me, skinnier, and more sloppily applied. Any thoughts on this one, guys?

    Thanks!

    Hi there.

    The rear setup looks ok, but can't say if Zimmermann made these. I'd fall for this badge, but in better condition.

    I think it's ok too, but rather poor condition.........

    Thank you, I have viewed a few more examples online and see some that look very similar to this one. Now I just try to stay far away from the coffin-shaped pin holders as a starter. Then I try to compare to others i see. Have been spending the past few weeks educating myself as I made a purchase and then received a large auction consignment to weed out for sale. Don't want to sell fakes with the good ones.
