    Default NSKK Badge - Worth Looking at?

    G'day all,
    An upcoming auction in my area. Out of my area of collecting and probably a forgery but always worth an ask!
    Apologies, I know the photos are garbage. Perhaps something obvious? Thanks for looking

    A pricey little badge, but it looks like a repro to me. Here is a real one at the Collector's Guild to compare it to. The Collector's Guild

    Thanks again William. When contrasted, the craftsmanship on the badge you posted is outstanding and not at all comparable to the one in my photo. Cheers

    I find it interesting that they have a few very similar items such as this in every auction and so far every single one has been a fake! As 99 percent of their stuff is non-militaria related, I wonder if they have a big box of fakes and they pull out a little bit every auction. They always sell though, quite sad really.
    Best regards,

    I noticed the detail in person was a little better than in the original pic I was sent. I took your advice and bid very small.
    I won it so here it is in better detail. Certainly not expecting any different news as the knowledge here is incredible! Still worth a look. Cheers

    Hmm...it may actually Be a period badge, but it is still missing it's back plate and mounting pin. A shame, as they are a fairly scarce and not cheap little badge when intact.
