Anti Partisan Badge

Post by Macmedal » 05 Apr 2002 00:38

I have just got this. Any opinions are most welcome. It is damaged as shown with a crack to the centre rear section, but the metal is not soft and does not bend back. I think it is zinc but is it original ?? Very similar to one Jamie Cross is currently selling. But that all I know. Thanks

Offering my opinion, I believe that collecting the Anti-Partisan badge runs a very close second to the Gestapo/Kripo I.D. discs in difficulty, both in availibility and determining genuiness.

Macmedal you will find that when I told you badge was 100% original is true. I noticed over on Wehrmacht Awards that you have presented your badge there. You will get some interesting opinions for sure. the advise Mr. Kimmel said is true. You have to watch your step when dealing with this badge because they have been faked heavily.

Mr Stump

I value your opinion and I am satisfied that it is original. However it was pointed out to me that there were file marks on the rim and it has been cast not die struck. I wanted to know which firm possibly made it and verify that some badges were die struck in zinc and others die cast. I know it is a long shot but it would back up any claim I had as already some not so knowledgable persons have claimed that the badge was only die struck not cast.

Thanks for your assistance

DIE STRUCK? NO WAY

Only the C. E. Junker's solid back badge were die struck in fine zinz. I will try to post a photograph of the reverse of one of these badges later. the obverse I lost, but the main detail can be seen from the reverse.
