SS Sports badge Bronze Real

Post by easterneagle87 » 22 May 2020 01:12

New to this forum. Looking to verify if this SS Sports badge, Bronze is real or repo.

So many fakes out there, but with help and assistance from others bad decisions can be avoided.

Thanks for having me.

Welcome to AHF

Its correct name is 'Germanische Leistungsrune der Waffen SS' ( SS Germanic Proficiency Badge )
A very scarce and expensive badge as original, unfortunately that example is not the case.
Only around 150 of these badges were ever awarded.

Indeed a fake. An original for comparison

Older link from the year 2013 to a weblog about the "Germanische Leistungsrune".

A few interesting photos, probably known to the most interested members here in the forum already...

* The spelling mistakes of the German language in the weblog there are excusable, but still quite typical...
And I have seen only one original of the "Germanische Leistungsrune" in a german private collection,
late 1970s, the rest is enigmatic...
