Default Gpb

Need some help with this 30mm badge, looked through the forum and a page I found to a link to "NSDAP Golden Party Badge"
The front looks good and the back seems to have all the markings it should of an original

thanks in advance for the help

Mike

Hi Mike,

The badge you show is indeed a Golden Party Badge of the larger size, intended for wear on a uniform as opposed to with civilian dress. I'm sorry to say that the number carried on the reverse of this badge is not presently identified on my list of GPB holders, so if you find out who this badge belonged to, I would very much appreciate knowing the name of that person.

With thanks for sharing this with us,

Br. James

Thanks for taking a look at it, I have one more for opinions,
I don't have as much confidence in it as this one as far as being original
Any ideas?

thanks again

Hello. This badge is in no way original judging from the photos. The number fonts are wrong and if my eyes don’t deceive me there is a faint number scratch as well. Plus the golden finish is no where close to an original. Regards Martin.

Looks like someone took Brasso to the first one and ruined the gilding and silver lettering. Second example is a fake.

I agree.

I also agree, Mike: the finish of your first-shown GPB has been compromised over the decades, though that badge is original to the period. The second badge is simply a fake.

I had to look twice at the large Deschler - the red enamel is very dark and the back is as well. Straight-on, well-lit photos of front and back would be interesting.

Nope, sorry. I think the enamel section for the large GBP is not original while the base disc may stand a chance.

That's why I'd like to see a full on shot in good light.

Both fake, IMO. The base of the large may have a chance, though.

Hi guys
I didn't get the badge, it sold for $400, due to the condition that was a little high for me. I think better pics would help for sure. It looked original to me but again I don't have a lot of knowledge on these
Thanks
Mike

The "Z" on the first badge tells the story 😎

I can see basis for the objections stated here and look forward to viewing better photos of the obverse of the first badge shown below.
