    Hello Mike, there was another thread in the forum regarding this badge and i remember that members said no real example has ever been seen.
    All the examples that appear here and there are fakes.
    Since we never saw an original example to compare, we can't really say much about the one you posted.
    If i remember correctly it has been said that there was a project about the institution of this badge but never happened.

    Hi Mike, sorry this is bad. This badge was never actually produced.

    I have edited your thread title for you.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, all of these badges should be considered to be fake.
    Here's mine, a Godet badge (who never made Kriegsabzeichen) no less! Again, bought before I knew any better.
    I've confessed twice this week!
