Paul's badge is the same. Look at the details John! I have studied the 29 badge for many years and the badge pictured is original but possibly cleaned.

Eric, nothing personal.....you can believe what you wish.....obviously you are seeing something completely differant than I am......which is fine. I don't know your true collecting experiance or knowledge.....and it doesn't really matter. I stated my opinion, I see many obvious differances (It's NOT the same!)......between Pauls and Niemanns examples.....as shown by the photos...I'll let anyone who looks decide for themselfs....
(But even Paul said he got it from WW 2 Unlimited!!!!!!) However....I don't want to get into a big discussion over "nothing" (IMO)....
Best wishes and good collecting. Like I said....it's not personal.

Hello,

can you please help me about this badge, if you can tell me if it is a value thing, i must say that it is original from Germany and the condition is excellent as you can see in photos. I think its a badge from a helmet, but maybe you can tell me more...

rhaool,..... :welcome:
This is probably a "door plaque" indicating the businesses or personal politcial preferances of whomever.....not a decoration. It would help if you included a size scale.....and while it may well be original, the enamel quality and lettering are not typical high German quality IMO......this is suspect IMO!

Let's have a picture - please! 8-)

Almost nine years after I got this thread started, I have to say I'm blown away by what's been posted here. The members here have some awesome collections, large and small. Please keep them coming :thumbsup:
