Thank you for posting some of these great looking fakes.
Steve, your badge is among the best looking fakes out there. The giveaway are the perfectly rounded letters.....something impossible in the period and only a machine could make such a mold.
Davo, you're too humble
Jo, post number 9 is a good fake. I'd like to fine one to see in-hand. Also the F.R. badge, I remember seeing it before and was impressed by this one as a quality fake.
A party today, so gotta run
I e-mailed the Collector's Guild about this pin (and the 'Deutschland Erwache 1933' pins in general) about a week ago, but they're still offering it for sale at $125.

Awesome thread! thx for the info!
I will e-mail them about the second fake badge.
Ok, I've alerted them, so the badge will hopefully be removed soon.
Although I might have been fooled by a few of the posted badges, I have only made it through a quarter of Jo's book and I am not fully versed in the parteiabzeichen overall, the large pin attachment device in post #4 and the attachment device used in post # 7 would have given me reasons to avoid. Would I have been correct for this reason alone or have these styles of attachment devices ever have been used on period parteiabzeichen?
