    I bought 2 badges from the same dealer at a show this past weekend, and someone thought the other badge might not authentic, so I thought I'd ask about this piece just to be sure. Thank you for any help. If you zoom in, you can see the back alot better, sorry about the bad pictures, I can't zoom in much more with my camera.

    Any one? 109 looks, no thoughts? Maker marked M1125. I'm just wondering if the dealer I got it from sold me 2 fakes, or just the 1. I want to sell it and buy medals instead, but only if it's real. Thanks for any help

    A genuine HJ badge. No obvious red flags. What else did you buy from this dealer? Any photos?

    Thanks Green, it is a neat little badge. I keep waffling about selling this and the party badge. I have some ideas for some Russian and German medals, and keep thinking about selling these to finance them, but can't decide for sure yet lol

    Keep it all if possible. I do understand the finance portion though. I have passed on a few things to finance my badge addiction. Personally, I keep everything and save for the next, getting rid of things is usually not an option. Several things were purchased at a great price and some were given to me so a profit would be easy but I can't seem to let anything go. Sooner or later I will get back to my budding EK collection and wouldn't dream of letting a badge go. Right now I fancy an SA dagger but am fearful in buying one, I know so little about them and my best shot at a good price is at a show. As you know, at militaria shows, resources are limited and you may not have time to get opinions for the forum.

    Gotta do what you gotta do, though.

    Very true, Green. I found out the hard way that the replacement costs aren't always an easy thing to deal with. Enfield rifles and M1 rifles are the way I learned that you can't always replace things as easy as the first time. I'll just cross my fingers and hope for the best
