    Hey everyone. I am now the owner of this badge and the others I posted two weeks ago. While inspecting it, I saw it had engraving on the back. Was wondering if anyone knew anything about it. It's SS which scares me, but looks to have been there a while. It reads as follows, (something I cant see) Heinrich Mathias 3? SS flak?- Abt. Das Reich Fpi Nr. 39858

    Anything would be amazing. Would love to find out who he was. Also, does anyone know what the Fpi. Nr. is for?
    Thanks in advance,
    C.S

    Note: The nine is done like the period nine, meaning looking like a g. Thanks agian!

    P.S I know das reich was created for native Austrians serving in the Germany army. Would that help any in my search?

    In this condition with the recent fix to the wreath, i would like to see better close ups of these engravings. At the moment I am not like it.

    In person the fix doesn't look as "modern" than in these photos. I think it be easier to prove if the engraving is real or fake by seeing if this person was indeed in the Das Reich unit. I also think the key may be the Fpi Nr. and his name?

    Not sure why a field post number would be scratched on the back unless he was in the habit of losing his badge?

    As Adrian has said above there is very little reason for there to be a unit engraving on a flak badge, for this reason i think that the engraving is post war added. Possible a person who believed adding unit marks to a badge would up the price a bit. And I believe if a soldier lost his bade or medal and still held the document or if the company/battalion held the document he was able to receive another for a cost.

    Can you please post a side-shot of the hinge plate on this badge?

    Hi, I must have missed this thread first time around.

    A couple of points to add. "Das Reich" was not created for Austrians. I think you are thinking of Regt. "Der Fuhrer".

    Here is the info on the Feldpost number:

    39858

    (28.2.1941-29.7.1941) 3. Kompanie Fla-MG-Bataillon SS-Division Reich,

    (1.3.1942-7.9.1942) 3. Kompanie Flak-Abteilung SS-Division Reich,

    (8.9.1942-11.3.1943) 3. Batterie Flak-Abteilung SS-Division Reich,

    dann 3. Batterie Flak-Abteilung SS-Panzergrenadier-Division Das Reich,

    (12.3.1943-7.9.1943) 3. Batterie SS-Flak-Abteilung (Das Reich),

    (8.9.1943-22.4.1944) 5.2.1944 3. Batterie Flak-Abteilung 2 (2. SS-Division),

    (23.4.1944-24.11.1944) 24.6.1944 Flak-Batterie SS-Panzer-Kampfgruppe Das Reich,

    2.10.1944 gestrichen.


    Cheers, Ade.
