The official, "unofficial", Party badge thread.

Article about: Very nice, Sandgroper The circles on the Pfohl badge are interesting and the badge appears to be in fantastic condition. I wonder what caused those circles? Green

    Gents, an M1/77 Foerster & Barth enamel badge, it is in overall pretty good condition, the enamel is good, it shows it's age but is in general pretty good condition with no major scratches or damage. The pin, again shows it's age, a bit of a bend to it but not too bad considering it is 70 odd years of age.

    An M1/101, Gustav Brehmer badge, This one is in really nice condition, you can really see depth in the enamel, my pics dont do it justice, it is much better than I can show. I'm very happy to have this one.

    Nice badges, sandgroper Is that darkened silver wash on the Brehmer badge or is it just the actual material of the planchet showing with the silver wash having been worn off of the lettering?

    Oh... I've also just received one myself, will post tomorrow.

    G'day Slados, thanks for the comments mate. The silver wash is still present but it looks like it has tarnished or stained as it is quite dark. I suppose at a guess this could be attributed to how the badge has been stored over the past 70 odd years, whether there was moisture present etc.... I'm sure it would polish up like new but, of course, I won't be doing that, I like it just the way it is and don't want to lose any of that lovely patina. These pics don't really do it much justice either, they certainly accentuate the dark look of the badge.

    Looking forward to you newie mate!

    Nice badges, as usual from you! Your M1/77 is an interesting badge as it's an RZM badge with an early pin plate attachment. That's an odd, strange find. Would you be able to add a shot of the RZM logo for the 77, please?

    Yeah, I know what you mean...in most cases it's best to just leave the patina alone. Unfortunately I didn't have time to shoot any photos today... xmas presents and all, it'll just have to wait a few more days. But in the meantime; Merry Christmas to you all!

    Thanks Sandgroper

    I thought it would be useful to have the RZM logo with the badge. It's a nicely marked RZM logo with the crossed Z and it's deeply struck. That's a really special RZM badge! The pin plate certainly doesn't look replaced but why would they use it!? Maybe that's all they had in stock? Makes for a great badge with a rare configuration. Nice one, mate

    A few photos of my latest:

    M1/105 Hermann Aurich Opaque enamel and on a buttonhole attachment. It still retains nearly all of its silver wash, only a slight age patina to the obverse... otherwise it's a beaut condition-wise --- really digging this one!

    The photos were shot quite haphazardly and with a handheld camera so they might not be as sharp as I'd like them to be, still they're representative enough for this humble rzm badge... hope you guys like it either way!
