    No good. It's a fake of an SS-Zivilabzeichen [civilian badge], but everything about it is wrong.

    Even just the pin plate says no!

    A rule to remember: When the reverse pin-plate is coffin-shaped, it's a fake...

    Even the runes look short, fat and weird.

    Sorry, as already been stated, it is undoubtably a fake. The coffin style pin, enameling, and runes are all incorrect. The marker may, too, be wrong. On a brighter note, welcome! This forum contains many members with a wealth of knowledge and they're very willing to lend a helping hand.

    Coffin shape pin - If you see a device (pin plate) shaped like yours, "coffin shaped", holding down the pin, run!! It is a clear sign of a fake.

    Of note as well ; these are way too LARGE = a fantasy piece made the size of a Partei-Abzeichen ..
