    Hi Ian

    Apreck Vrage (M1/90) made Party badges and marked them in this manner. This Party badge is not looking very promising though, as the attachment pin and catch are not what one would expect to see on a period Party badge. Can you post the obverse pic in the proper orientation, for a better look. No sense in going into more detail without a few better pics.

    Looks like a pretty obvious fake to me as well. Never seen that exact type of attachment before and when similar attachments are seen on period pieces it seems they're mostly on badges manufactured by Austrian makers but, as far as I know, never on rzm era badges even then.
    Looks like the "m1/90" marking is trying to mimic that of period Apreck u. Vrage badges with the mirrored/reverse slash etc. RZM symbol looks as if it's had the letters thrown in there separately at random, very akward and shoddy looking.

    I also see now that Jo, Parteiabzeichen.ch, has put a similar example up as a fake possibly manufactured by Tomas Fattorini --- so, that's the final nail in the coffin. Fake.

    It was very nice of your daughter to think of you when she purchased this item for you! The Party badge is not authentic and I hope she didn't pay much for it and if she did, a return should be sought. Nobody likes to find their item to be a reproduction and I hope the news isn't too upsetting, hence the gentle delivery of the information. I hope you will still provide some obverse photos of the badge though.
