Yes indeedy... a really nice design on a very rare NS related badge! Congrats and thanks for showing! I haven't dipped too much into the "foreign" part of NS badges myself but I surely do recognize a nice looking rarity when I see one... case in point here! Although fake party badges seem to get more replies than original ones on here, no idea why, I for one applaud your past, present and ongoing efforts in showing off these under appreciated rarities even though ---
A great addition, if not a centerpiece, to any NS badge collection as I see it!
Thank you, Slados!
The NS Denmark badge surely is a center piece in a badge collection and thank you for recognizing it as such. For awhile there, I though I had blocked responses to the post. Several people "liked" the post/badge but no comments. Surprising, as it's a scarce badge, much moreso than GPB or Blood Orders, etc. and those get millions of replies. Even fake badges as you said garnish more replies. Maybe I didn't shower, I don't know. I'm no quitter, so I'll continue to try.
Your reply and comment is very appreciated :)
I can't say that I've ever seen one before from Denmark! A great looking badge and certainly a rarity. It makes for a fine member of the 4 with it's other 3 rare cousins! Nicely done!

Thanks William! I am most pleased to have shown you something you haven't seen before!
I have an entire thread with volunteer militaria i personally find important. Close to no one leaves a comment. It has over 36000 views. So you get used to zero interest after a while. If you are not showing a SS "something", then there is close to no interest.
"yes i will get down from the soapbox now"
Collect ROA, Cossack, Schuma and other WW2 Volunteer militaria.

Wow,great badge! I find it very intresting because i'm from Sweden. (For you Americans who doesnt know, Sweden and Denmark are neighbors)
I love Scandinavian nazi-stuff so keep up the good work and post your findings!
Thank you for the pic of the headquarter and the other stuff!
Great looking badge ! The " rock candy " red enamel contrasts perfectly with the white outer ring !
A beauty and rarity . Nice clear shots , I have enjoyed many Greenhorn posts . You have a fantastic collection ! Thanks for sharing !
Really interesting badge Mark, glad it resides with you now, as it is getting the attention it needed
Can you walk us thru the rest of the badges that you posted? I know the one is a gold party badge, but that's about it.
In the same boat as many,i have never seen one before...there is a really good museum in Copenhagen and im sure they have a few items from both the Resistance and the collaborators...Perhaps they could assist you with further help
