    The one shown on it's own and the one on the right in the triptic both have the coffin shape pin holder which is a sign of a fake badge. The center one appears genuine. The one on the left appears to have quality less than what one expects in the period.

    As usual, Mr Coleman is correct.

    The center badge, by Stubbe, is the only authentic piece. The piece on the right, M1/129 is the common overly-domed fake.

    In retrospect

    Seeing that this thread is on the first page, isn't very old, and the member that originally posted it should be aware, the most left badge posted in the original post is a fake, as Bob C suggested, and here's the proof.

    My below pictured Party badge has been lifted from a fakers website and can be found in cheap forgery sites all over the internet. This is the same badge as posted by the original poster (far left) on this thread. Zoom his pics to see a closeup. This badge is a better quality fake.

    None of the photos below are from authentic photos.

    Photo 1) Looking carefully at the S in Sozial...you see the large gap between S and O and the S has that odd shape as the orignal posters badge. The shape alone does not make it fake but in this case it does, it's unique to this die. Photo 2 is exactly the same and from the same die.

    Photo 2) A common search on the net for NSDAP badges and Ioffer will have plenty of these badges on their site for whatever price they charge. Agian, the same style S and gap is present. My un-numbered closeup photo, below. shows a closeup of the same manufacturing style as pic 1. Pic 2 has better enamel and is more believable, but the font is the same.

    Photo 3) Different font than photos 1 & 2 but the manufacturing style is the same as pic 1. Photo 3 was also borrowed from Ioffer and I'd like to give credit where it's due.

    Photo 4) Different from the others but just as fake. The gap between S and O is present but the issue here is the S. Notice the Sliced-off ends of the S. Each letter has flat tops and bottoms. Sure, there are many badges with flat letters, I have several, but when you zoom on this badge there are no imperfections to the cut-offs. Authentic badges are not flat under magnification. In case you're not sure, the reverse is marked RZM Ges Gesch (not pictured), we already know these are fake.

    The reverse of the OP badge appears to be unmarked and has a pin plate off center. All of this should point to an early period badge and the font does not suggest this at all. The reverse of this badge should be the single most questionable factor.


    I thought someone might find this informative. Thanks for reading.
