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

    Good to hear that, Mark! Great badge there as well! I really do have a thing for badges with big and bold reverse markings such as this one, the nicely matching raised pin guide really makes for a very pleasant symmetrically and proportionately correct looking reverse. Also, the fact that it has a pretty thin font to the obverse only helps that bold and precise stippling in the red enamel to pop even more... nice one! Your photos are excellent as always btw, I'd love to get you camera settings

    Some great badges being posted here boys, about time I got organised and started buying a few more badges! I'll see what I can do over the next few weeks.

    Jo, can you share any information about this badge and/or how often it pops-up?
    Ooops, sorry for the late reply :-( Well judging from the reverse markings i would attribute it to a sub-contractor, along the same lines as M1/162 and a few others, maybe only made for a short time, or only once, who knows, would depend on how often they had orders for them i guess. There are a few Sudetenland makers marks that dont show up often on Parteiabzeichen, 143 is certainly one of them.

    Thanks for your insight, Jo. The sub-contractor business always eludes me. I knew it wasn't a common number as you didn't have one and it wasn't posted on the thread by anyone. Still searching for a 95 also.

    A maker marked Ferdinand Wagner Party badge. This is an early Party badge with a neat looking maker mark. It's unfortunate that it took a shot right on the rim and cracked the enamel, however, you can see the stippling that should be underneath and that's pretty cool in itself. The cracks in the white enamel look great and make it look evil, well, I enjoy it. The whole badge has a bend going down the middle and the pics don't help it much. Most of the value in this badge is gone but it's still has a home in my collection as it's not all too common of a badge. Hope you enjoy it.

    Mark

    LOL, thanks for the reply. I thought you were kidding about the settings! Just to warn you, I only shoot in sunlight so things change around a bit but near direct sunlight should get you there with these settings with the same lens. EF100mm F/2 2.8L IS USM at shutter 1/30, aperture 9.0, ISO 100. That's the setting for the first pic (appears naturally colored and a bit darker). The second and third pics with increasing transparency have the same setting except shutter speeds are 1/20th and 1/13th respectively.

    Thanks! I'll have to start playing around with this camera a bit more seeing as sunlight's FINALLY, well... slowly but surely, coming back around these parts. I've been shooting under rather insufficient artifical light for the most part, so... looking forward to some outdoors adventures in the coming months

    That's a great looking makers mark on the reverse of the badge Mark, It's had a rough old life by the look of it but it certainly has lots of character.
