    The letter font is quite different as well. Compare, for example, the cross bar of the "H" .

    I really don't want to ask this as I'm losing faith in human kind 

    A nice looking U boat badge offered for sale. On a well known site that guarantees authenticity. Real or fake?

    Please take a look. This is displayed on my favourite website.Click image for larger version.

    Spandau Militaria?

    Formerly known as UKM Sales?

    Favourite website?

    My raised eyebrow doesn't come over very well on an internet forum but I recommend you do a search for this site on this forum and read what the general consensus is on this dealer.

    The Orth U-bootskriegsabzeichen is a fake.


    Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny do exist. They live together in a mnage trois on Spandau Militaria's website along with all the other fantasy pieces............

    I'm beginning to get a little fed up Adrian. I thank you so much for your comments.

    I've deleted SM from my favourites.

    Trying to buy one of these badges isn't easy. Ignoring SP I now find a UK dealer with two FO badges "guaranteed original" yet both FO logos differ .

    I find a american dealer with a Mayer made badge that offers a lifelong money back guarantee for authenticity which is a better bet than just 7 days.

    I could be posting images on here for ever.

    Aarrgghhhhh

    Don't get disheartened.

    There are plenty of reputable places to buy original militaria from. There are the forum sponsors here, the classifieds section to be going on with.

    You've done the right thing by joining the forum and have asked the question before spending your money. If you want a list of reputable dealers to look at just let me know and I will PM you a list.

    Until you find your feet and know what to look for, just keep posting. Every badge or medal you post is a learning tool for everyone be it good or bad. Post each different piece in it's own thread which makes it easier to find when using the search button.

    What's the Mayer badge you're looking at?

    Thanks, your kind words don't make me feel like such a pain in the ass.

    Here's the Mayer link.

    excellent original Third Reich maker marked U-Boat Badge

    Seems a realistic price.

    Oh and please pm me that list of reputable dealers. Is Parade Antiques on it? They have the two differing FO badges.

    Btw I don't mind buying repro, as long as its at repro prices hahaha thanks again.

    For some reason the link doesn't work and neither can I access the site from a Google search.

    I've never heard of Parade Antiques either but looking through their inventory I can see some dodgy pieces. The Pilot/Observer badge in silver and the Pilot/Observer badge with diamonds to name just two. One of the FO U-Bootskriegsabzeichen is good, the other is a fake.

    A private message is inbound.

ID:	519177I'm guessing the fake badge at Parade is the better looking badge with the dodgy "O" on the back? Am I learning?

    The US based badge is at www.od43.com/u-boat_badge_W0.html

    Correct, the genuine piece is the one with very little finish left.

    The Mayer badge above I'm fairly sure is a fake going by the photo. That catch for me is a giveaway of a post war piece.
