    Hi & welcome. There is no confusing situation at all really. Until a year or so ago all that you would read on forums is: Otto Hoffmann is a fantasy name = Fake.
    This is not quite true though, and it is now a known fact that there was a C L O T H manufacturer by this name.
    Thats all though, to date still no connection at all, between this maker and metal badges of any kind.

    Only for comparation: Here is my Otto Hoffman badge, it was purchased in London by a friend in late 70s. Some years ago he gave it to me without know if it was good or a reproduction.

    I haven't gone through the thread checking prices but this Hoffmann must be close to a record:

    HJ Abzeichen Auslandsorganisation Luxemburg Y129 Auction No.: 0006477916 (Mil321 Seller: Nordwind). As usual, fantastic detail in those far off, blurry pics... 385 Euros!!
