    No proof that Otto Hoffmann made metal badges has ever turned up John. Over on HJ-Research they have uncovered evidence showing that there was indeed a company with that name during the Third Reich and that it was producing textile items, not metal badges. Klaus B may not know that but he certainly knows that he can't show the orange badge to be authentic hence, as you point out, the use of the word "interesting". It's a euphimism for "I'll let the customer decide" and is of course widespread among dealers.
