    Hi Militarymania,

    Please can you explain WHY this is a fake, like pin or detail etc so I can learn the trade. I am getting better at filtering out the junk, but have not come across this one before.

    Hi Al, that fat looking pin is totally incorrect.

    These badges are really high quality with a fire gilt finish. I remember seeing my first one 34 years ago, but it was not cheap, even back then, and I could not afford to buy it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    look at the crispness of Ade's badge compared to the fake i posted,,,lots of differences,,,pin is wrong,,soft or smudgy RZM marking,,,these are the most noticeable red flags,,,

    What about that large B? Is that also bogus, or is that OK to be on the badge? I never had a B on any of my HJ badges...

    'B' was marked on replacement badges, I believe........

    Thanks for the clarification Ade, the difference in detail is amazing. I remember the same with a Das Reich cuff title I looked at that looked like raised letters it was so bold and clear, whereas the repro was a bit fuzzy around the edges. Another lesson learnt.
    Cheers,

    My pleasure Al.

    Steve is correct on the "B" marking.

    Cheers, Ade.
