Another great looking badge!
The DE badges are my favorite slogan badges because they signify the beginning of something "big" to come.
Of course I'll post some of my other badges. Just finished photography on a few, now just need to go through the pics and get them ready. Mind you, I'm probably older and not as computer savvy as you young bloods. lol
And yes, I couldn't agree more, less interest in badges equals more badges for you and me. There are a few other guys who collect badges but maybe not as regularly as we do. And now that some of the fakes are getting really good, there may be even less collectors.

I have to add one thing, and it's about RZM badges.
Although they are among the most common Party badges, some numbers are very, very difficult to find. The fact that they are so difficult to find, makes them very collectable. The obverse may look very similar, or exactly like another RZM badge, it is in fact a rare and highly collectable item. I would trade off a hundred M1/34's for a single M1/95. As the Party badge gathers steam and they get into advanced Party badge collections, an M1/95 will be highly sought by that collector. Surely they are not as fun to look at, and I agree with Slados on that, but I'm sure everyone can appreciate a rare item. It's like what a Round 3 is to the Iron Cross.
So keep collecting 'em guys. The more you look, the more you'll find really good ones. I found a rare RZM badge at a flea market a month ago. I knew it was a number I didn't have but had no idea what I just found until I got home and looked at my badge list. I couldn't be happier to find it for $40!

No problems as far as I can tell --- not a rare maker as such but enamel examples, especially good ones, are not that common compared to enamels from other dime a dozen makers.

Another quick note...the Forum here is not a free evaluation service...
