    Thanks for your opinion guys In my collection I own this Stickpin from the German Racial community based in Hungary. As you can see, the construction isn't of the typical German standard nor is the pin or the overall quality of it.
    Thanks, Glen.

    OK, I received it today and I personally think that it is genuine. The original pictures show it to look bad but what do you guys think of it?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Am still not liking the metal quality or the workmanship in this pin a whole lot. I have searched extensively through Littlejohn's book and throughout the internet and have yet to find another stickpin like this piece. I'd feel alot better about it if at least one other example could be shown.

    In my person judgement, the metal quality is to poor, the sick pin is not curled, the enamel is very shiny when the rest of the badge has age (also the reflection if it is enamel) the . For the rare nature of this badge there is so little documentation and i have never seen one on the net that is not legitimate.

    Thanks for your opinions guys. I don't think that there is enough available information of items like these, is it a fantasy item or just un-heard of? I don't know. The only other thing that I could find remotely to mine is this. I can't see that items like this would be faked as there would be plenty more on the market.
    Thanks, Glen.

    I honestly feel there isnt enough evidence to cast this as original nor fantasy. More research needs to be done. The makings of this badge is troubling, but not definitive proof to mark this off as a fake or fantasy IMO. If it was a fantasy item, then like glennyboy said, there would be more examples out there. I think you either going to have to live with this one as a "maybe" piece or do some serious homework. Good luck, ps you would think this pin would have to exsisted, as it was extremely common among branches to use these in public to represent there organization.
