    No Third Reich connection there; it's an Austro-Hungarian WW1-era badge for 106th Assault Battalion.

    See here for some more on the subject; scroll down to the bottom for this particular badge: Austro-Hungarian Army - Austro-Hungarian Assault Troop's Badges

    I cannot tell whether this one is real or not, but they are heavily faked.

    Edit: Ade outdrew me!

    Cool this is another post from a guy on my Facebook page, I think some stuff is real but most is fake but I am no expert. He posted one more thing but I feel as though I am posting to many items at once. I dont want to ruffle anyones feathers =)

    Don't worry: post as much and as often as you wish. We enjoy seeing stuff.

    I cannot offer an opinion on the badges' originality: it is outside my collecting interests.

    Cheers, Ade.
