Default What is the story on these westmark pins?

I read a long time ago that these were fantasy. But I see many sold by dealers. What is the story?

Only for Lorraine (current département de la Moselle), Alsace was annexed to the Gau Baden.

Hi
the Deutsche Volksgemeinschaft Westmark-Lothingen was created by Joseph Bürckel at the beginning of 1941 and managed by Eugène Foulé; he was sentenced to five years of forced labour on 20 December 1945.
Cheers
