    Hello all,

    Can anyone identify this one for me exactly and any thoughts on being authentic?

    Looks like a SA flag bearer gorget I have a NSDAP but they are pretty easy to tell I really haven't seen a lot of the sA only about one or two I haven't seen a version like yours but I think some references list it. The SA ones I have seen are quite heavy with the chain and all. Hopefully some political guys will come along and help you out I don't have a lot of Politcol objects stick with Military. timothy

    Sorry, I missed this one. The markings are known examples found on fake gorgets. The design is partially based on the Feldjaegerkorp, but this design is total fantasy.

    As Bob Coleman said, a fantasy design created by combining the basic SA FJK duty gorget with the "starburst" emblem found on the SA's heart-shaped flag bearer's gorget.

    The TW marking tells it to be a fake (for Willy Thuy).
    They lost their permit already before the introduction of most of the codes.
    I thought this fake product came from England or the Netherlands. In the
    last country many fake SA-Feldpolizei and SA-Feldjägerkorps gorgets were
    produced.
