    Default Adolf Hitler 1933 badge

    First of all I just want to say hello to everybody as I'm new to this site.

    Yesterday whilst in London I visited a militaria shop and purchased two badges. I purchased a silver zinc wound badge (with the number 30 engraved on the back) for £65.00, and a Adolf Hitler 1933 party badge for £95.00. The dealer is very reputable and had many fantastic items in stock, so I didnt hesitate purchasing the badges.

    However, as I am new in collecting, I did some research on the A. H badge and from what I have read it appears to be a fake.

    Has anybody here found any definate news on the history of this badge? I have included some pictures, but I apologise if they are not the best quality.

    And sorry, this appears to be a topic that creeps up time and time again.

    Thanks guys.

    It looks like a post war fantasy badge to me

    Thanks Nick, I appreciate that. I persume that £95.00 for a fantasy badge is rather extreme?

    Firts of all, welcome to the forum.
    It's a shame your first thread is going to result in bad news but I fully agree with the guys above. The badge is not a period item and is not a match for any known wartime examples. There are many types of these fake badges circulating with different legends or mottos on them.
    I really hope you can get a refund and if the dealer is reputable then he/she should not offer any argument.
    Please post the wound badge too.

    Thanks AdrianC, your advice is much appreciated and I don't think I'll have trouble getting a refund (I hope). As requested here are pictures of the wound badge.
