I Think this is a bulgarian fake !

And what about the type from posts #211 and #212?

Thanks for sharing those articles!

I have two of them in my collection  - so as I saw so many "new" printed badges - I became very suspicious !

I had two in my collection, one artillery, one army and I I sold them off...couldn't be satisfied they were original. I believe at least 80 % of these on eBay are fakes

Also these, good or bad? They were sold couple of years ago on Serbian internet auction site.

This whole lot are reproductions, someone said to me that might be a variety, but I never saw such variety before, so I strongly believe that these are reproductions.

 

They didn't end up on Ebay though, they sold localy in Serbia.Perhaps poor new owner think they are very rare....

Guys,

all the above Infantry Cap badges are fakes, I am really sorry if someone from here bought one of those recently, please contact the seller(s) and demand your money back, this is really shame that happening with these beauties.

Here is how an original SDS (Nedic Adminstration Cap badge) looks like , the copies lack details at the reverse and edges at the front are not sharp, with flaws,as you can see from the photos Paja upload.

 

So beware when you wish to purchase or bring photos here.

Thanks, as always most useful! That lot appeared in 2012. and all 5 were sold for around 150 euros which would in my opinion be more than excellent price if they were original. If I remember well the seller wrote in description that they were found at some old lady's home or something like that. What's interesting is that just couple of months later same seller sold one more for almost 100 euros. So 5 for 150, 1 for 100...

Again many thanks for photos of original emblem. Is there any other difference between SDK and SDS emblems apart from the color of the cloth?

Hello gents,

Some of you have already seen these items, one or more of the red m39 badges might have replaced cloth, please feel free to comment.

Serbman, the squiggly lines I'm talking about are to the left of the word "ravna"

Just beautiful! Thanks for sharing photo of your amazing collection with us!

Apart from the cloth perhaps being replaced on some of them and one missing P2 everything else seems to be in order. 

To me the most obvious detail that right away tells me if the emblem is fake is monogram.

Compare it with this original piece (not mine). Details are obviously not as good as on the original piece, for example take a look at the acorn in the upper right part of the fake medal.

Everything is looks bad, "big crown", "smaller crown", eagle, take a look at the cloak especially fringes on the right side!

Posts 247,248 I agree there's a huge difference in the quality of the two medals. The silver one is three dimensional while the dark one is two dimensional at best. The last letter E in the word gradjanske the makers ran out of room and had to tilt up. The whole thing is missing fine detail, but the "patina" is kinda impressive.

These some very fine pieces Vladane, congrats.

 

Can you share with us the number of the Serbian Ravna Gora Chetnik Alu badge?
