    Hello Marks. At first I thought the badge was OK. It gives off the impression of being the type 3 version of the badge. (last one made) .but when I look at it from the rear - there are a couple little things that make me wonder about it being original.
    First off are the Saar=Lautern markings....they are all on the same line and kind of crammed in there.
    Secondly is the pin catch. It doesn't look "twisted" enough. Hard to explain but have a look at my late war silver version. You'll see what I mean by the pin hook.
    I could be wrong - but I wonder if the same maker would have changed the way they make the badge?
    I'd like more opinions on this too please....

    Cheers!

    Hi Marks...Yes, that is the same one. I also noticed the pin hinge is not as it should be as well. I think it would be best to stay away from that example.
    Cheers!

    Yes, the front did get me at first. One thing I noticed on the front is the "corner" where the swastika and the wreath meet. On my example - it's much crisper. On the repro - you can see that the angle is not as sharp as it should be.
    Another giveaway. Glad to be of some help!
    Here's how I have my badges displayed. Took me a while to find one of each (Gold is Type 1, Silver is type 3 and bronze is type 3 with serial number).

    Cheers!

    Hi Marks


    I'am a bit sceptic considering the originality of this badge, I haven't seen one like it. On the otherhand I don't collect political awards...
