    You cannot judge whether a badge is fake or not by any of those other traits, seems this way of authenticating party badges is a well ingrained collectors myth... I see this all the time.

    Swastikas vary greatly in size, both "static" and "floating" are all normal on good badges. Shapes of letters also vary greatly, from what looks like designed and executed by a child to perfectly symmetric expertly executed font styles... they can all be good nonetheless. Spacing between letters and other such details do not matter for the most part either.

    Look at a LOT of badges, learn what meets the eye on good ones vs. bad ones, get a feel for them and that old time quality --- except for a few marking no no's there's no one rule to judge good or bad in this field.

    There's always someone that skips their homework altogether out there--- makes pumping these fakes out all the more worthwhile for the fakers.

    It breaks my heart that someone probably will love to put this item in their collection and believe it's a good one.
