    I have this Reiterabzeichen for a while now. The patina is different then the other Reiterabzeichen I have.

    I got it as a RABZ in bronze, and I sought that someone shined it up. But unlike the others it is still shiny after years. Could it be a RABZ in gold?

    No, that IS a bronze. The gold class has the same sort of gold finish found on navy war badges.

    Rule #1: If you have to THINK about whether a German sports badge is bronze or gold... it's bronze. :beer:

    PS I would never polish this again. It simply wears the details smooth. A nice old untouched bronze will have a pleasant tobacco sort of color.

    None of these badges were SHINY when new. They all had a matte, soft finish.
