Chris.

They used the old type skull in the prototypes, which were rejected.

But ................... nice to see the skull still featuring on British uniforms in these politically correct times.

Great patina on that badge.

It takes 100 years to look like that !!

Never, never polish it

Just wash it with soapy water.

I purchased one of these from Weitze late last year with a COA.

Are there now four known to exist??

I don't remember that Weitze had an original on his site during last years? There were only MWH fakes for sale. Can you show us pictures?

The more research I'm doing is telling me that it is a fake as well.....no to see if I can get my money back!

I've seen the black/white/red slip-on loops in WWI strap collections. I wasn't sure what they indicated....perhaps volunteers. Seeing this, it seems it must be a postwar thing.

This lot was sold by Weitze two times. It was offered as "Wehrwolf", but in my opinion it has nothing to do with the Wehrverband.

Not a badge, but a German propaganda picture-stamp (4 x 6 cm) dating around 1944, showing the faces of Rooseveld, Stalin and Churchill in a skull.

Awesome collection.  I do have a question.  Post number 2 the blue hat with the orange piping on the second shelf.  Can you tell me what it is please?  I have one, with out the badge, and don't know what branch it represents.

Welxcome to the GMIC!

In answer to your question, I'm not sure which post you mean but you will likely have better luck if you ask the original poster directly.  Just click on the screen name of the person who posted and you can send him a private message. :)
