Someone posted this one earlier. Not sure, but it looked like the painted version to me. Here's my enamel one. Sorry if the previous one is also enamel.

I never see the Nurnberg 1929 badge in this typ of metal and with so poor details.(concern the second pic)
Also the 100.000 of Potsdam badge was in "yellow-dark" metal.

Hello all
I was wondering about that HJ Potsdam badge. I have a silver version of it and I have seen the Bronze version. Can anyone tell me why it came in two versions? If I'm not mistaken I think i read somewhere that the bronze version is the original version and the silver version is a later type? If not any ideas? Again thanks for any info provided Also what are the Potsdam badges going for in value nowadays?

The Nuremburg Rally Badge in question is a hollow backed type award. It came in a variety of colours grey, silver & gold.


The potsdam badge also came in a variety of colours, silver, bronze and as shown a flat grey finish. The Potsdam his getting harder to find these days and varies in price between $100 to $150


Luca what dont you like about both these awards ??

Dear Nick i dont like nothing. I like all. I no have any aknowledge concern badges.
Much years ago i was involved for long years in a really great number of badges but i never have read a book.
My poor comment was simple what i ve write, i never see .....
Thank You for explane to me that exist different typs of these badges.
Im surprise especial for the Nurberg 1929 cause was "banalofauna" as very very common piece and is funny that into the much that i ve look no 1 was in the mentioned differents typs.But maybe my memory no funtion well, as usually.
Thank You very much for the information.
In any case , if i can permit a no professional comment, the first typ (in yellow color) of the Nurnberg 29, appare the best, infact the silver typ appare that no show a eagle but a turkey.
Best Regards
Luca

It has been removed by W&L, IMO.

I believe your piece to be one of the rarest variation of said badge. The reason they removed the silver purity stamp has to do with the piece being constructed out of nickel. Some of those exist as marked with 'Alpacca' stamp while others- like yours- bear no base metal identifying marks.
