Robert, I know zip about the badge you show, other than having seen two other examples like it, but non raised GES. GESCH. is not unknown.

My GDAO badge has an impressed G--.G----.

It's difficult to tell from images some times whether a mark is raised or impressed, but I believe some of the R.K.K. Reichs Kultur Kammer pins have impressed G--. G----.

What about your NSKG example?

Nice badge Robert. I've been asking myself the same question re the notch as well....... Joe is correct about the GG mark, there are accepted instances where a stamped marke is OK, this nbeing one of them.

Here's my 25, the eagle is a little off centre on this one. I've been chasing a 40 for a while, I've almost caught it, just a little way to go......

Joe Correct about NS-Hago. Astute observation. Beleive it or not, I actually parted with my NSKG!! Needing to accumulate funds for a large tinnie purchase on layaway from an esteemed European collector. Oh, and Don, would you know how the Eagle is secured to the rest of the badge? :speechless1: Robert

I think that it was some type of glue, similar to what was used on the Kreissiegers & Gausiegers etc. Sometimes they slip a little before setting........

Normally they are set perfectly in the centre like yours, but occasionally they are found slightly off.......

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
