    I was under the impression that the hollow badges were the 1st pattern...as the badge was originally merely a tinnie that later gained elevated status, and that the later-produced solid badges were the 2nd pattern, after the badge received official award status...
    Please feel free to correct me if my assumptions are incorrect...I have yet to add one of these to my collection, but it's definitely on my list of "Must Haves"...cheers and thanks for showing your examples...

    All the badges i showed in post nine, that were/are up for sale as genuine at MILI321, are reproductions.

    Some dealers do sell them as reproductions, like the one below,

    but 50.- is a bit too steep, considering that you can go directly to the faker, and buy one for 15.- (just add patina and start raking the ca$h in)

    Hi Glenn , I think you are quite correct , I don't think I have ever seen a hollow back 2nd pattern Treffen Braunschweig. Here is my hollow back 1st pattern for comparison , the pin has been re-soldered at some time but is is original. Leon.

    LINK. Images below. Was advertised as a solid silver First Pattern i wouldnt know who is wrong or what was what, but i doubt very much that anyone else really does either when it comes to these.

    I personally don't like this version and until a period photo of one of these badges with the raised lettering shows up I would avoid it.
