Wait for more opinions to be sure but...

I have the same version and I beleive its OK(original/period) based on what I've read in old threads on this badge. While the majority of 2nd type (decoration style) badges are hollow stamped pieces, both M 1/35 (Wachtler & Lange, Mittweida) and M 1/17 (F. W. Assmann & Sohne, Lüdenscheid ) produced similar rather crude solid back aluminum SA Treffen Braunschweig 1931 badges with crimped pins like this one

Here is a pict of mine

Regards

JC

This one is marked to Assmann, but I do not pretend to have any expertise in this area........

I agree with Jean-Claude: the solid aluminum SA Treffen badge in my collection is identical to JC's piece, including the "Ges. Gesch." at the bottom of the pin.

I'm sorry to disagree with ErichS -- whose opinion I always highly regard -- but RonR's example is fine by me, as well. I realize that there are still many questions around all of the different versions of the SA Treffen Braunschweig '31 badge!

Cheers, friends,

Br. James

Sorry to disagree with you, jiipee76; I quickly took a look at just one dealer's website and saw a number of examples of the solid version of the SA Treffen badge listed at over US$250.00 each -- which is over 235.00 Euros at today's exchange rate.

JC's badge is an original but I wouldn't want the badge that started this thread in my collection. For example, note that the left side of the swastika is lost while the one on JC's badge is perfectly formed. Also, the over all detail is lacking as well.

If you look all the badges shown in thread,all of them have swastika arm not "centered" properly.One of the arms is not in same position than others.
