    On page 16 of NSDAP Enamel the author also states that it was normal for transitional badges to have Ges. Gesch, the RZM logo AND the maker number.

    No one has disputed this to my knowledge as regarding the party badges that is - the badge in question should never bear an RZM mark though.

    At this juncture, I would like to, with no disrespect intended to you or Mr Tucker, point out that the book to which you are referring is not entirely correct.
    The site mentioned by Kenneth run by Jo Rivett also has a book review on this book. Please go and view it.

    Thanks Tom, I will. I am very new to this aspect of collecting, and have found Michael Tucker's book to be a big help in starting to learn about these badges. I am sure there is much more to learn, and thanks for the tip

    Ouch! Well, after reading that review, the only good thing I can offer now about the book is that it got me interested in the subject, and has resulted in me being aware of a far superior source of learning. Thanks again for the tip!

    Troy, sorry for not answering your last question, only just got the thread notification from WRF.
    His review really opens ones eyes, doesn't it? If ever in doubt visit his site.

    The "coffin" shaped pin plate on the back is always a dead giveaway.
