    HJ Goldenes Ehrenzeichen RZM BM1/122

    First of let me intorduce myself, my names Bruce im a noob to the forum!
    Got this( one on left) from an older woman at a tag sale. Tried to do some research but could find alot in order for comparison..anyone know if its real or have one to compare to..also heard they are highly faked..also a possible value, also have an unissued HJ armband..but its kind of odd..it doesnt glow anywhere except for the thread that holds the insignia.. but only the part of the thread on the inside of the armband..once the same thread goes through the armband to the outside it doesnt glow..weird..any clue

    Welcome to the forum. I've seen similar armbands as you describe, they are most likely good. Pics would help. The golden honour badges are heavilly faked as you mentioned. There are others here with a lot more knowledge than I have on those, so I'll leave the comments about the badges up to them.

    Well, if it's not legit use it as a filler until a good one comes along. If Stu says it's a repro I'd go with his opinion. Legitimate examples of this badge are pricey and rare.

    Is the wreath really that wide on a real one. Never seen it side by side with a regular one and it looks massive.
