Party pins and something extra...
I have these coming (or so I'm told) and wonder what, if anything you folks think of them. I find an excellent match to the 33 badge but wonder about the golden party badge and the little "whatever" it is... iron cross with pearls!?
compliments and regards,

Can't help much and party pins but the cross is engraved on the front. On the top it is "AMG" or AMC" and bottom is "R.V." Odd also is the Star which is inside the Cross and the crossed rifles and swords.
My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

The 1933 Deutschland Erwache badge is a fake
The Golden party badge is a fake IMO
No idea what the small cross is
Cap eagle looks genuine
I agree with Doug, the GPB is a fake for sure, can't comment on the others though.

Both the GPB and the Deutschland Erwache are bad fakes -- I think the term "stinkers" would be appropriate, in fact
