    Some believe these are fantasy pieces. The pin plate doesnt look authentic either.

    Actually, not even the grammar is correct on this one: It would have to be "britische", not "britisch".

    I believe these are fantasy items invented after the war by fakers. They have been around at least 30 years to my knowledge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I have just bought one of these badges from a dealer at the Great Dorset Steam Fair! I agree that the German grammar is suspect, but it may be acceptable in a compound-noun, particularly if the badge was aimed at a Brritish audience. That aside, some sites claim that the badge WAS issued at the Munich Peace Rally. If that is the case, how does one tell a "fantasy" item apart from an original? I'd be grateful for any advice from members.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    The problem is not everything written on some sites is accurate. This muddies the waters and creates confusion. I strongly believe these badges are complete fantasy items designed and made postwar in the UK.

    Cheers, Ade.

    As a native speaker of German, I can assure you that it is simply and plainly wrong. The endings depend on factors such as gender, grammatical case and number.

    For example, the basic adjective is Deutsch-britisch (= German-British), but it is Deutsch-britische Freundschaft (= German-British Friendship).
    Another example: Britischer Soldat (= British Soldier), but Britische Soldaten (= British soldiers)

    No matter at what market such a badge was directed, a German manufacturer - particularly one as experienced and renowned as Deschler - would not get the endings wrong!

    Ade, Thanks. That would explain the spelling! Do they have any value...?
