    I agree. At the time, many nations had not yet entered into the war, including the United States. At the time, the United States had a number of competitive glider pilots who flew in international competitions, and often flew shoulder to shoulder with Germany's premier glider pilot, Peter Riedel. So I agree 100%. I think many times, if a collector doesn't have information or been told an item is real, it is automatically discounted and called a fake.
    If you want to really see naysayers just post a signature.

    This is an NSFK badge commemorating the 3rd Internation Air Competition in 1940. There were two International Air Competitions held the previous years.
    I picked up one of these about 8 years ago, and I have heard both sides, its real its fake. The problem is, no one really knows.
    The main topic of conversation about whether or not this badge is real is the fact that people are suspicious that Germany would have held an international competition while the war was occurring. Still, since there is very little NSFK reference material around, no one truly knows the answer.
    The Angolia/Littlejohn NSFK reference book indicates this same basic sentiment, showing numerous badges but also stating that what is shown in the book is a sampling of the NSFK badges in existence. I would hold on to it until someone has proof one way or another. Just a thought.

    Good advice - Hold on to it until it can be authenticated.
