    Hi Ewan, sorry it is a fantasy design.

    Compare to this original NSDAP badge to see the difference in quality of the enamel etc..

    Cheers, Ade.

    Wartime German enamel was very good and all will have a nice translucent quality to them.

    However, by late war some enamel badges were dropped and they went to painted badges as a cheaper and quicker alternative. The base material metal was also changed to zinc.

    Here is a late NSDAP badge from my collection to illustrate the point.

    You also bring up the issue faced by the new (or indeed long time collector) of "What to do with a fake?". The main thing here is to be honorable and not pass this on to the unwary as original. You now know that horrible sinking feeling you get when you first find out that something in your collection is bad:

    1 If it was bought as original try and get a refund from the seller.

    2 Hide it away in a drawer and keep it as a reminder to do your homework before parting with cash.

    3 Sell it openly as a copy.

    4 Give it to a new collector to learn from. ( I did this with many fakes I had)

    5 Or a drastic one: smash it to bits with a hammer so it never gets sold as real again!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ewan, as a rough guide you can almost say EVERTHING is faked.

    I am not sure which SS badges you are talking about?

    Cheers, Ade.
