    Just allow me to add that these ridiculuos items were made by fakers who obviously did not speak German and who couldn't even be bothered to at least get the text right.
    Even if everything else about the badges' construction etc. were convincing, that alone would bring them down for anybody speaking the language.

    One badge pretends to be for a "German-Japanese Academical Conference" held at St. Christoph am Arlberg, Tirol.
    The fakers didn't bother with punctuation at all ("6" instead of "6.", "DEUTSCH JAPAN" instead of "DEUTSCH-JAPAN." etc.), made "CHRISTOPH" and "AM" into a single word ("CHRISTOPHAM") and misspelled "AKAD." as "ARAD".

    At least, the German-British friendship pin has only one goof: It should be be "BRITISCHE", not "BRITISCH".

    Hello there,

    Pins with these "coffin" shaped mounting plates are not to be trusted. If a badge has this style on the backside then you automatically know it is a reproduction.
