    Its fine. 1936-39 manufacture. Used throughout the war and afterwards on visor caps and winter headgear.

    Thanks so much for your responses! Are you able to tell me how you can tell that it was produced between 1936 - 39? There doesn't seem to be any maker markings on it.

    These are not maker marked.

    The pattern later changed to a one piece construction in 1940, hence they can be dated to this period.

    Nice badge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I believe this badge to also be one produced between 1936 & 1939. Does anyone know if any fakes were produced? This one looks almost TOOOO good!

    Copies are currently made in Eastern Europe (Belarus) and sold as such, see Schuster.ru, but this is not one of them.

    This is a nice badge which I would be happy to own.

    Cheers, Ade.
