    This was a gift from a friend who acquired it in mid 70's at London.

    I agree I just saw this maker looks good to me also.

    Even after 66 years, available information can still be incomplete. I agree that the pin looks to be a fine period original.

    Hi,

    You remember me this old thread. It looks good in hand too, I compared it with two others RZM markeds and the only differences I can see is the hook size and the width (OH=13,64mm, M1/143= 14,39mm and M1/6 = 14,65mm). But general opinion among collector communit is Otto Hoffman never produced itens during TR periode, it's a post war reproduction.

    General opinion in the collector community is not always correct. This is likely a pre 3rd Reich era badge as it lacks RZM markings.

    Hi Bob,

    Because I think like you about the "general opinion", I prefer to preserve it with me until solid informations about this maker are disponible.

    The Collectors Guild has one just like it and Pete knows his stuff. I looked through all the list of makers and dont find it either but as Bob says available information can still be incomplete.
    I would like to hear more opinions on this.
