    I just saw a pin exactly like mine except different number ,on a dealers site and emailed him that I have one like it,I put it on a forum and they said it was no good.He replied that he dosent care what any "expert" on a forum says,his came in a vet grouping and he has had a few like it over his collecting years and they are 100% original,wow!Who would have made these post war pins and when?Do you guys see a lot of them?

    This may well have come as part of a vet grouping but that doesn't make it wartime , many SS Vets will have pins like this together with unit ones that they have worn or purchased at reunions etc.

    If you go to a Waffen SS reunion , not that there are many to go to now and they are fairly common !!

    OK,thanks for the info,no the dealer implyed that a US vet brought one like this back from ww2 Germany.Must have been much later,mystery solved,they are post war pins bought by former ss members at reunions,wow I thought this insignia would be outlawed in post war europe.

    Thanks Jim for showing your originals. Now the membership can compare them to the fake show which started this thread.

    Cheers, Ade.
