    Hi,

    I found this badge on 1944shop. Is it a newly made badge? If so, legal or not? And is it worth buying?

    Hi Twinjor, welcome to the forum and thank you for posting.

    I moved your badge to a new thread, it's best to do this so each item for opinions gets it's own place and doesn't get lost in amongst others.
    I also uploaded the photos to the thread because when the item gets sold or the link is removed the photos disappear and we have a thread where no-one can see what the discussion is about.

    Regarding the badge, I believe this one to be a fake, the reverse hardware doesn't look like that found on originals and the number '51' appears quite consistently on fake badges and awards.
    Hopefully someone with more knowledge of these badges can offer more insight.

    I don't like it.. I've seen a lot of these, well 10-15 the last year and well, as Adrian stated "the reverse hardware doesn't look like that found on originals and the number '51' appears quite consistently on fake badges and awards"
    To me, it looks new, like a few days ago. But I haven't had one myself so I can't really tell for sure.

    The badge is a fake, I'd stay clear of it. The hinge for one thing... It looks just horrible.
    Best Regards

    along with other defects noted previously (such as the really bad hardware setup), i don't think i like the "830S" marking in raised relief at all.

    And also the fact there are two of them in the photo in the same new condition should give two more reasons for concern.

    they're asking 29 Euro for this? they aren't even really trying to put this thing out there as authentic, are they?

    this is all reproduction stuff over there and priced as a reproduction should be, more or less... the Germanische Leistungsrune and everything else.

    i've been in the market for an example of this badge for some time. i think we all know what an authentic piece goes for.
