Stahlhelm : Landesfuhrer rank, I think.

The upper badge is a Stahlhelm members' badge.

I believe the collar tabs are Freikorps, but don't know what rank. Obviously high :rolleyes:

The lower badge is Freikorps: Verdienstabzeichen for II. Marine-Brigade Wilhelmshaven (Ehrhardt).

The upper section reads "VERDIENSTUMS"

The middle section has a central oakleaf overlying a (l-r) black/white/red ribbon

The lower section reads "VATERLAND"

Regards

Mike

Hello Gentlemen,

I made a little research and found this collar tab in www.uniforminsignia.net

there is the only one that is more close with collar tab in the photo,but without the white piece.

the rank is bundesführer.

a honorary rank maybe??

Cheers

Hi,

It would seem this is a flying club badge- see here in WARLORD'S thread:http://gmic.co.uk/index.php?showtopic=5516&st=20

Hallo,

the lower badge is "Verdienstabzeichen II. Marinebrigade". Some pieces from the Marinebrigade out of my collection.

Regard

Uli

I'm resurrecting this thread to identify a couple of common fakes that were shown as genuine badges 10 years ago before these badges were identified as recent reproductions.

These fake badges show the sail as "luffing" (flapping, i.e. with creases running through the sail) which would never happen with a ship sailing full bore with the wind. Ehrhardt, as an experienced sailor would never have approved a badge with such a technical error as this. So, obviously, whoever created the new die for this badge never sailed a sailboat. If compared to the genuine Ehrhardt badges and the gilt Wilhelmshaven badge,  the mistake is obvious. There are other less obvious errors, which I don't want to identify, so as to not alert the fakers.
