    Question RAD Pin - N.S. Abtlg. 4/305 Braunschweig Arbeitsdienst: Authentic Piece? Info?

    Hi, all. I picked up this little piece recently as it looked like it might be good. It was only $15 USD so if it's bad then not much lost. Can anyone tell me if it's good? I tried to do a little research on it, but haven't found much. Any info on it and what these sell for would also be much appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Adam

    Okay, I have found good resources and educated myself on this piece now... an RAD lapel badge for section 4/305 Braunschweig under sponsorship of the FAD/NSDAD. I'm actually a bit skeptical of it's originality now as the other examples I found have a different looking smooth, enameled obverse. Being marked 37 it would appear to be by Julius Bauer & Sohne?

    Any thoughts?

    Best,
    Adam

    For whoever's interested, there is a number of lengthy threads about this badge on the WAF and apparently this is a highly uncertain badge. After looking over all of them, I'm 99% certain this is a bad, fake or fantasy badge. Apparently there was never a camp 4/ 305 in Braunschweig and there's no place called Braunschweig in Bavaria. Additionally, if these were pre-war isn't it less likely that they would have been painted/lacquered?

    Anyways...an interesting learning-experience piece.

    Hey I saw your post and I have the same exact pin. I found it in Delaware and I still have it. Was looking for more information about the pin if you can share with me.

    Hi, and welcome to the forum!

    Nothing more to add about these. They are modern fantasy items which never existed during the Third Reich era.

    Cheers, Ade.
