    Some help with the German on the site you posted a link to which, by the way, is an excellent one I hadn't found before.

    One clue to the fakes is that the number should not be clearly seen on the back which is clearly the case as seen in all of the fakes posted on the site. In Weimar times there was only a single line of text. In English he says "After 1933 (probably in 1937), the Reich Ministry of Finance replaced the Imperial eagle of the Weimar Republic with the new emblem with the swastika. From about 1937 the badge was imprinted with Customs Border Protection in addition to the wording from the Weimar Republic (Empire Customs Administrations). In other words, your badge should have both lines of text. I've attached a picture of a copy I bought as a filler because it was cheap and recent copies appear too good for me.

    Regards,

    Gordon
