    Hello Mapels. I can't help with authenticity, but it is always advisable to say hello, please and thank you when posting because you are more likely to receive help from members. Also we do not discuss monetary value of items because price is subjective.

    Kind regards,

    Will.

    This is a Wehrwirtschaftsfuhrer Abzeichen or Defence Economy Badge.
    The few that I've seen all seem to be gold in colour so this one may need further expertise to evaluate, I don't know if a non gold grade was produced.
    If original, could be quite valuable but we don't value items here as collectors place their own value on things they want, it's subjective.
    There are originals out there in internet land with prices attached to them so you can easily find a value.
    Hopefully some more knowledgeable members can authenticate the badge.

    Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....

    To reinforce the point about valuations; in the first instance the matter is subjective and the market will advise. However possibly the most important reason for not giving valuations is to discourage the mercenary approach of using the forum as a free authentication/valuation service by persons not interested in the raison d'etre of this platform which is study, discussion and information exchange within the hobby. It's not members being stuffy or unhelpful but it is about preserving the purpose of our group. I hope that makes sense?

    It is a reproduction of an original wwsf badge.
    Originals were made in tombac and fire gilded.
    I have posted pictures of mine previously
