    Zoll (Customs Officers) arm badge.

    We have got some more of these shown on the forum: if you do a search on "Zoll" you will find them.

    Cheers, Ade.

    PS: Welcome to the forum! And thanks for the kind comments.

    You are comparing "Apples " to "Oranges" I think?

    The need to read some German is really nessasary.

    Yours reads " Reichszollverwaltung" (National Customs Administration). Yours looks good to me?

    The Collector's Guild

    Thoese in the link read "Reichsfinanzverwaltung" meaning "National Finance Administration".

    Hi Nick, I think you will find the number is personal to the wearer.

    No idea if any of this kind of info is available: I seriously doubt it?

    Cheers, Ade.

    but i saw to stay away from a certain #, i believe 32023, because they are all fakes, so i figured this number was a unit

    Did you know that certain employees of the Reichszollverwaltung were Gestapo ?

    i did not know that but the gentlemen that brought in that bade also brought in a polizei belt buckle and some nice pins and cuff links so im thinking that those items might have been pulled off the same soldier
