    Hmmm..... The first one looks like it was recently fixed and the second one has coffin shapped pin mount which is an indication of a fake. Anyhow im not an expert lets wait for others to respond.

    I agree. The M1/6 (Karl Flensler) badge is good. And the Hoffman badge is at best questionable. I only say this as the pin attachment plate doesn't look like the typical coffin variant one we all avoid like the plague. Hoffman is also maker that was never established as an HJ badge maker or badge maker in general. Also the patina looks forced, falsely aged. Here's a link to Hoffman badge authentication, In general I'd stay away from them because of their postwar association. Best regards.

    Image comparisons. The badge from the thread I enclosed, your badge, and a newer reproduction badge (pictured top) pin plate. They do look similar and I would think you can safely call them all coffin shaped. But yours and the thread badges plates seem shorter and more rounded. But it could just be me and or picture quality. As stated there is much doubt as to makers validity, and I was curious if any new information had come to light since the posting date of the enclosed thread? I'm certain the consensus will be a 60's era reproduction but interested to find out.
