    Screwback disc assemblies did exist both in the Imperial era and the Third Reich period as fasteners for certain pinback decorations, including - for example - Iron Crosses.

    They were, however, not used for SS insignia or any other political badges that I am aware of, and RZM-marked screwback discs are always fake. As you said, they are quite typical for Polish-made fantasy items (and also often seen on fake SS tuxedo badges).
    Ah, thank you! I forgot about the Iron Cross. That should have been obvious.

    By the way, this skull is very similar to the one being pierced by an SS dagger in another oft-seen badge. Perhaps they come from the same master craftsman.

    Looking at the shirt on the guy to the right, it appears he enjoys chewing tobacco....with his mouth open.

    This is my favorite of all your insignia pictures. It is a truly beautiful set.

    Thank you. The cap itself is actually of more merit than the badges. But I regard them all as a totality and the only way to see and understand these badges is on a cap.

    In any case, I grow very weary of all the junk that heaves up here, though we are enjoined to help the beginner discard the junk.

    Nonetheless, the sight of the junk surely takes a second off my life each time.

    I can't say exactly why, but I find the patina on these particular insignia to be exceptionally pleasing.

    I hope for all our sake that this is not true.

    Thanks for the above.

    Some 14,ooo posts, many of which are to disentangle the detritus of the fakes and so forth, do take their toll.

    Happy collecting.
