    When you all say Post War, does anyone know when these surfaced? I mean to say they may have been made commercially by ( or for ) a right wing movement later on rather than to confound us collectors with an obscure lapel badge.
    I can see how a "Germany wake up" pin would be of use to many of the National Socialist movements of the 70's........

    Hello Dan
    Original Deutschland Erwache badges date from around 1923-1932. There are also original badges saying Deutschland Ist Erwache
    from the same period. Fantasy badges saying Deutschland Erwache 1933 originated in the 1970's & can be seen in Nicholas Morigi
    "The Regalia Specialist" catalogues from that time. These fakes appear to be of reasonable quality & to have period style hardware.
    Nicholas Morigi is still going as a business & are still selling the same reproductions. However the quality is now crap & the badges
    have the easily recognisable coffin shaped pin plate.

    Regards
    Brett

    agreed, the 'coffin' shaped pin back is false

    Oh yes, Carl, if I'm buying on line and have questions I'd post here for help, but this was at a collectors show last week end. I had looked over some of the pics on the party badge thread, and took a chance. I hadn't planned on getting heavy into German militaria, but thought it might be nice to have a couple pieces. I'll stick with British kit and bayonets, I know more about those lol I took a chance and got burned, we live, we learn. I'll do more research for next time, the show comes around again in October Thanks everyone for your help

    I just figured out who is in your smiley on your signature lol that's cool
    Paul, please don't be put off by this bad badge! This isn't even a Party badge and Party badges are quite safe to collect. Avoid M1/14, 128, 129 until you are more familiar with the general construction and feel of these things. Sailorjerry posted an excellent M1/14 opaque original to study from. Once you have a dozen under your belt, you will spot most of the fakes more easily. I'm still a novice and learning about these things such as period pin attachments. I also am very cautious of badges marked only Ges Gesch, there are good fakes here!

    Hello Green
    A lot of the pre RZM badges were marked with only Ges Gesch. This is where you really have to know
    the variations in period pin hardware to make a decision.

    Ummmm.....correctamundo! These are just a few. No coffin pin and no partial peek type. Not sure what those "peek" type are called.

    Hello Green
    Have a look at Jo Rivett's site Parteiabzeichen.ch. & you will see the number of badges marked Ges Gesch
    & the different pin mounting systems that I was speaking of.

    I know what you mean, there are some long skinny ones as Wim posted on his Desch badge. Here is another type. Jo's site is fantastic. I don't know as fact, but he may have one of the most extensive collections in the world? Maybe not any longer with his sales. I know I have a few of his badges
