    Sorry mate, maybe I am a little dull but I just don't understand the question here!

    What pins and catches on which item are you asking about?

    It was already explained on this thread:

    Could anyone help with this pin ss

    It refers to the plate that affixes the pin assembly to the badge. If it is "coffin-shaped" (as the one on the badge whose picture you had removed, rendering said thread useless) the respective badge is a post-war forgery, as this type of plate was never used during the Third Reich era.

    However, It is not possible to make a universal statement on which type of pin assembly/catch is correct, as there were countless variants.

    Which one is correct depends on the given badge, manufacturer, period etc.

    Thank you Andreas I didn't make the connection as it appeared to be a "stand alone" thread

    Knowing of the connected thread the question makes sense and as usual you have answered it well

    Sorry to say but the photos have been reposted I was unclear what it still meant sorry for the trouble but I was not clear on mostly member pins in hindsight coffin shape is a unclear word to me in itself I am trying to utilize this forum properly but even though I was direptresptful as from the get go it seems I can not do anything right I am trying to learn I am sorry about my lack of learning as many of you have obtained please do not post that I am whining as before but would I be fair if I had a starting point I have to start somewhere I am in process In attaining reference books as instructed my lack of knowledge in all fairness should not be my downfall no disrept implied I wish I was advanced as others but I am not again the photos where reposted as here they are again if my actions at my beginning off membership which I am very sorry for will follow me through out my time people let me know as I would not what to agrivate members I will stay off forum at my loss as I am thinking of other members and there time. I was out of line what more can I say example of wrong things I done since thinking I was in good graces 1 pictures sideways 2 to many items in photo3 poor lighting 4 too vague I was not familiar with features but I figured those out I am not in no way Bill Gates I backed off posting in all fairness I was wrong again I am just a young kid who likes this hobbie and what to do the right things I am not trying to make excuses but a little understand would be most grateful for I am not going to quit on collecting so if desired keep the hits coming Kevin

    Watchdog. Sorry sir I never implied you are dull where you get that from as a matter of fact I respect you knowledge the fact is my post was not complex enough so I take I am the dumb one.Thought my bad start moved on smart enough to know I am sadly mistaken. Best of luck on your collection Kevin

    For proper setup on Party badges, look here. Go through this thread below:
    The official, "unofficial", Party badge thread.

    You must look on many examples. I think that I've done a pretty good job just by looking,then looking again and again....and again...
    Buy a cheap original and sit home with a cup of coffee and compare to fakes here on the forum.
    I have of course asked a lot of questions here

    As HPL said, there is no universal statement here.

    Always stay away from that SS pin To me, that setup on your picture is a coffin pin.

    Now I know what you mean by coffin shape the way it is mounted to the badge itself I though people meant by the catch where the pin tip ends after all to a novice pin point catching might be misconstrued as a coffin shape to someone learning. Thank you because you saved me money as a matter of fact I was going to local shop today and would have got another fake. thumbs up to you for you patience and understanding
