Example of a fake Adolf Hitler 1933 M1/129 badge?

Article about: Picked this up today, almost certain it's fake but it was free when I purchased something else. The coffin on the back is the obvious sign here, right?

    By the way, fake is equivalent to fantasy. If saying it's a copy of an original, one should use the words copy or reproduction, not fake.

    a thing that is not genuine; a forgery or sham.
    "the painting was a fake"

    Sorry Bob, that was my fault. Apologizes to the thread starter too. The badge is a fantasy as stated above. Again, nothing gained, nothing lost, thankfully. Thank you for posting the link, and nice item. I am a big fan of the early examples with the engraving.

    A "fake" is, in my mind, an item trying to mimic the all of the characteristics of an original in order to deceive -- whereas a "fantasy" item/design is, well... made up, a total figment of the producer's imagination --- such as this Hitler 1933 badge.

    Either way, enough semantics... there's other slogan badges out there, original ones... seems like Nun Erst Recht badges are the easiest ones to find at a decent price.
