    Fakes have laser engraved maker marks and serial numbers. The hallmark and maker marks are stamped which is good but all of the Gontarczyk's ZP badges I have seen to date were either hand or stamped numbered. Reising's badges were not numbered. The spinner is genuine but it may come from another badge which is an old trick. Judging the badge by the threaded post perhaps a late replacement. A bit puzzling badge to me.
    looks like I will be in this mode this weekend

    PZ, I've moved the discussion of your Znak Pancerny badge to the pre-WW2 section here.

    As Kosa said, original Gontarczyk badges had either manually stamped or engraved serial numbers. From the few examples I've seen it seems that the silver officer grade badges had the stamped serial numbers, such as thsi one from my collection which has been deliberately converted to pinback or repaired in this manner because the original post was lost:

    The main red flag with your badge is the thread post. Original badges have a manually finished ends to the post. The post on your badge has a modern machine finished end, typical of many modern copies.

    Hi Igor,

    It’s the first time I am seeing this badge and this maker name. The style of the spinner is reminiscent of those seen on post war makers though, so this may be a post WW2 product. Sorry that I cannot offer more information.

    Regards,
    Tony

    What is this interesting badge? Artillery?

    pre-ww2 Jewish maker is my guess.

    ....Update.....

    This is the 1930 to 1939 Warszawa maker:

    Szabason Michał, grawer, Nowy świat 24, Warszawa.
