Hello

I have always wondered about these Frauenhilfsdienst badges with the makers mark on the reverse because the makers mark looks, at least to me, just like the makers mark on what I believe are considered fake038rbobver.JPG.074c08de6a8874c0d051c19ce5a95d53.JPG Forderungsrennen 1935 Olympic badges & a few other fake enamel badges  one sees. 046rbrev.JPG.0d0f907578acd0fd53edfb2b4fda9ca2.JPG I don't really collect badges much but have always wondered about these badges because of the logo. 

thanks,

Duzig(Bill)

Hello Bill,

The badge you presented is a post war fabrication. It has been commissioned by one of more colorful personalities in our hobby (JF) and is a fantasy item- there were no real badges of that nature prior to 1945. Whether or not the order has been fulfilled post war by Stubbe or some other outfit that used  Stubbe maker's mark to 'enhance' the pieces is unknown to me.

Hello Matthew

thank you for your reply.  What I meant to say was that I always had a feeling that the Frauenhilfsdienst badges with the Stubbe logo on the reverse were fake because they had the same logo as those on the fake Olympic badges that I show in my above comment.  That's why I was always hesitant to buy one of those marked Frauenhilfsdienst badges.  Again thank you for your comment

Hello Joe,

Hope all is well on your end. I guess my eyes are not as good. I thought they looked the same at least the Ges. Gesch, or so I thought. Could you point out the differences so I could take a closer look.  LOL, I guess it's a good thing I don't collect badges.  If they are different then my comment has no relevance to the thread. In any case an interesting thread and I appreciate your comment and Matthew's and anyone else who may comment

thanks again Bill

Looking again, I think I do see some differences. the e's on my badge look a bit more elongated perhaps? and the g on mine also seems to be somewhat more elongated? If that is one of the differences please let me know, and any other you see please let me know. Again it's a good thing I think that I don't collect badges perhaps.   I really must need better glasses LOL. 

thanks again

Bill

Hi Bill,

I have an example but it has to be the grainiest picture I have so it is of little use. Will try for a better image.

To my eyes the G's in Ges. gesch. are different. Also the E  and R in BERLIN.

Joe, You are right for sure. The G's and e, r,  do look different. Also it looks like the letters on my fake Olympic  badge are raised while yours are incuse(?). Except for the word mainz and the #3.   Not sure if that is the correct term but on your badge the look stamped in I guess I mean.  Thanks for pointing that out.  Definite differences for sure

thanks

Bill

Joe I agree also you are right about the e and r in Berlin.  The DRK badge and Frauenhilfdienst  have the same markings.  I don't recall exactly when and why the marked Frauenhilfdienst were deemed copies.  I know Stubbe had a contract for RDK.  If someone or even Stubbe for that matter would keep producing postwar why would they not keep producing DRK??  Thanks all for the input.  This is the most action Ive seen on here in quite a spell.  Its great.  Regards Robert

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
