You will need photos of the back of the badge also to tell
A fake is a item that is produced for reenactment or more common, to fool collectors. The forgers have made fakes since the 1950's and 1960's till this day.
A fake is worth nothing to me
Ok. I'll post them in a few hours if I get them. Does this mean that it is a good fake (if not real)? Since it is not obvious by its front? Iím under the impression that one usually can tell rather quickly by its front?
I guessed this would be the answer when I asked on a forum like this
Very bad fake, meaning absolutely not of the pre-war or wartime period. To me, fakes are near worthless --- more or less I do not see the point in acquiring them as they have absolutely nothing to do with ww2 other than poorly mimicking period items. They were not produced during the period= what's the allure? They have no history.
To top it off, this one's just plain ugly... save your money, buy yourself a genuine minty party badge of the period instead of flushing your money down the drain. Or, save up and get yourself a real golden party badge---
I'm not surprised, but may I ask how you can tell?
agree with Slados,lacking quality.
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
