Again, Paul Meybauer seemed for a while to be doing his own thing. Here is what I think is an original early badge with RZM logo, GES GESCH and his RZM license number ("21") alone before the "M1"...

The clearly fake ones are the Moragi specials, you can find anywhere (with or without RZM M1 license numbers...)

Jo Rivett and his magic microscope have pronounced this one original over at another forum. It is so worn I think it is hard to tell, but it is possible. Most at least would still have a maker's mark...

I suspect the dots are die ejector marks, like on this badge. Not commonly seen on a GPB.

Sorry to say that it is not a period eagle. It is a fantasy design and materials. These pins were made in the 1960s and 1970s, but not before 1945.

There were about 7200 recipients of the Knights Cross of the Iron Cross, but only 900 honor Gold Party Badge holders. That makes the honor version of the GPB 8X rarer than the Knights Cross.

Yes,...

Found an angled shot from a previous sale. I don't see the "A.H." of an honor badge, but you can see the vent hole. Looks like it was sent out for engraving completely custom.

This is the "special" Gold Party Badge - the "Honor Badge".
