I don't believe it's a DRL in gold cloth.

It looks a little bit like some kind of Kriegswinterhilfswerk, though the lightning bolts could be signals of some sort.

This is DRL /NSRL however it is faded, they were used by themselves on shirts and also with other group or club sport insignia. It is not gold.

I confirmed it to be a fake after I tested a theory I had about the base material witch I feel I proved after I started using a digital microscope to examine my collection.

The middle eagle is the real small version and I have encountered only 2 examples of it.

Sorry for the picture quality but you can find better scans of them in this thread.
Could you tell if the small is a fake by looking at the reverse?

In case you don't know washing an item with modern detergents will give it a glow from the brighteners in it. Also during that time there where brighteners used to keep whites white. This is why you need to also do burn tests not just glow tests. I also use a magnify glass to make sure there are twists in the threads.
Can you tell if it's real by the reverse?
