Nick, I have always heard that the badges in posts #17 and #18 are fakes. Have you heard anything about that?

Hi Rich,

seriously?

They claim that these pieces are phantasy pieces?

Or they claim that these are replicas of original badges?

Cheers,

Nick

Hmmm, a test of my faulty memory...

But I think the latter may be true. I know that I have had #18 in my hands (years ago) but people decried it as fake--perhaps it was not a fantasy piece but a replica. However, I must confess that I cannot remember. One thing I do recall is that my badge(s?) had no reverse inscription, so perhaps that reveals something.

No reverse inscription on reverse of the badges from posts # 18 and #19?!

Hmmm...

As we see one is marked Alois Klammer Innsbruck and usually described as "Hitler Youth Leader Travel to Japan Badge"

Here comes another example

There are indeed dubious badges (or let`s call them more dubious badges :lol:).

Here we have two examples of such badges.

Badge from 1944 (don`t you think that it was a little but to late for such games :speechless1: ... ) and it is marked on reverse.
