    Question Badge of the 56th Zhitomir infantary regiment

    Hi I'm new here. Normally I collect German Imperial orders and orders of the 3. Reich but I'm interested in Russian militaria (both imperial and soviet), too. Of course I have not much experience in this field.
    A few month ago I got this badge. I think the material is bronze and it seems to be enameld. I hope someone here can tell me if this is an original or a fake. If you need pictures from other perspectives just tell me. Also it would be nice if someone could tell me it's value if it's an original. The prices I've seen on the internet differed between 1000$ and 5000$ but I can't imagine that.

    No one? Well, maybe someone could refer me to a (good) Russian forum. I think some expert there can tell me something about that badge.

    As far as I can see this is a rather crudely made cast copy of the original badge

    Thank you for your reply!
    Well, look at the attached picture, this is an original badge. To me they look very similar. The badge below was sold on an international auction in 2011.
    I checked the enamel on my badge under UV-light, it didn't turned orange/yellow so the enamel is good.
    Maybe it looks a little different on my pics, but when I look on the reverse it doesn't look like a cast copy, it seems to be stamped. The finish on the obverse may look a little bit odd but if you look close on the reverse there are some areas where the patina is missing and you can see a nice bronze color, just how it should look like.
    For a long time I wasn't sure on this badge but if I compare those two I think it's a good one.
    Unfortunately I am far from an expert on this badges, so the chances are good that I'm wrong.

    I'am not such a specialist in regimental badges, but it may be an enlisted issue of the badge
