What is that!? Denazified badge

Article about: Well not much to be said here.... paid 50 cents for it... Figured that since it had been denazified (rather crudly I must say!) it stood a chance of being a real badge. What do you think? La

    From these photos and the condition of the badge it's very hard to make a call one way or the other. My initial thoughts were the same as Eric's but to artificially age and muck around with the reverse such as this on a fake badge makes you wonder if it isn't original after all. I just don't see the point of making a fake, de-nazifying it and then ruining it further by re-soldering the hinge and wrecking the catch area.
    It would only have any value as a relic and for 50 cents it's not going to hurt financially.

    Maybe Larry could post some straight on images in natural light so we might be able to make a judgement?

    Hi Adrian I see this done more everyday to pass on to the unknowing. It will give that hint of age and still be able to post on Ebay.

    I completely agree with you Eric, hopefully some better pics will be able to tell us for sure.
