    "They are a slogan badge worn by residents of the Saarland, who voted for a "Return to the Reich" in 1935, after being separated from the German Reich in 1919 through the treaty of Versailles. The possible production date of these Slogan badges can only be from 1923 through 1935. 1923 being the date of the first known slogan badges (Nun Erst Recht) and 1935 being the date of the Re- integration of the Saargebiet back into the German Reich." quoted from J.Rivett

    As you can see they were genuine badges as you describe, but pics will be needed to confirm originality.

    Pleasure Didier. If you already have it, or you are going to get it, please post pics in the "The official, "unofficial", Party badge thread".

    Tom, although its possible that they originate from 1923, thats only because thats the first provable date that a Propaganda badge was made. Some badges could date from 1922, when the NSDAP was already banned in most places in Germany, but that cant be proven though. These would date from much later, i would think around 1933-34 just before the Saarland, returned to the Reich. The Saarländer were not big with the propaganda of "Back to the Fatherland" before the early 30s, so this badge would obviously tie in with the Paroles of that time.

    The WAF thread says something about Austria? They did use slogans like Heim ins Reich, but the slogans Zurück Zum Reich, and Zurück zum Vaterland were used in the Saarland, on Propaganda cards as well. What also supports this, is that no "typical" Austrian produced badges like this are known, i.e. with the typical Austrian Sunray pattern that they used on many official and unofficial items. As well as being known by German manufacturers, like Karl Hensler. (Why would Germans produce Austrian badges? they could, and had, be doing this themselves)

    BUt we wernt there, so we dont know for sure but a good guess would be Saarland. They are quite hard to find.
