    Default Armband / NSDAP badge - fakes?

    hello.

    i'm new to this forum. here are a couple of pieces i've had for a few years, i have no idea whether they are authentic third reich or are reproductions. any help would be appriciated.

    Armband:



    i've never seen an armband like this before. i'm assuming that means it is a fake. i've not seen an armband stamped on the rear like this before? any info appriciated. i'm expecting it's repro & that's ok because i paid next to nothing for it.


    Badge:



    i bought this when i was in my early teens & paid a bit for it. i know barely anything about NSDAP badges, but i don't think i've seen any which are this flat shape.. does that mean bad news? is it just an aged fake?


    i've also got a 'jude' yellow star of david which unlike these two items i do believe (well, hope) to be authentic. i don't know if anyone here has any knowledge of jewish holocaust memorabilia? if anyone could shed light on that item i can take a picture...

    thanks.

    Sorry but both are fakes.

    We have many images of good armbands and NSDAP membership badges on the forum.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I can only comment on the armband, and agree with comments above, that is a really bad fake.
    Sorry.
    Cheers.

    The NSDAP badge is particularly poor quality !

    I must agree with my colleagues. Sorry to say both items are 4th Reich junk. Welcome to the Forum. I hope we can help you avoid buying fakes in the future.

    thanks guys.

    no surprises there then to be honest. the quality shows, not to mention the fact they both look different to the many examples i've seen.
    atleast i didn't pay much for them. it's all part of the fun of collecting, i guess.

    & being an artist, i'll no doubt find some creative use for them anyhow! save them from the bin atleast (even if that may be where they belong)...

    Horrible indeed. Notice that they did not even manage to get the spelling right: "NATIONAL SOCIALISTICHE" instead of "NATIONAL-SOZIALISTISCHE"!
