    Post Austrian HJ Edelweiss insignia

    IMG_4280.jpgIMG_4281.jpg

    Hey guys,
    Opinions on my new Edelweiss insignia?
    Was this the only Austrian HJ Edelweiss that was made? If not, I would appreciate photos.

    Thanks,
    Lewis

    It was NOT specifically made for HJ, but also for SA, NSKK and
    for example the German police. If it is a good one, I do not know.
    It is not nicely manufactured
    I have shown various photos in the headgear-series, volumes 3,
    4 and 5 where this style was in use!

    Terribly sheared. I can`t see this being anything but very modern.

    Thank you for your opinions.
    Can you please back it up with evidence, that way it's a fact and not a claim.
    Sending it straight back to the seller if its a fake.

    Thanks

    HI, i don`t think any "claims" have been made on this thread?
    By horribly sheared, i mean exactly what one can see on the images you provided - so the "evidence" is in the images.

    Here is another (mint) one, identical to yours. Here is the link - still for sale.
    Horrible, Xmas cracker quality.

    Thanks for the help.
    Just before i message the dealer i bought it off. Do you have photos of an original example.
    Is this a confirmed fake example and not just a late war peace.
    Lappland shield is one of the ugliest TR award but its still original. So saying it looks bad doesn't automatically mean its fake, correct?

    Thanks

    Why would you compare official Party insignia - controlled by the RZM - to a 1945-home-made item many say never exsisted? In any case, the Lappland Shield was supposed to be cast by soldiers on the front line, and not metal insignia created and manufactured in a factory en mass.
    ?

    Thats a good point. I'm 20, been collecting for 1 year, so still learning and saying stupid statements. But atleast i can admitted it.
    Can you PLEASE answer my other question? I want to make sure its a fake, please provide evidence e.g. photos of an original.
    I really need this info asap so i can tell the seller and get a refund!

    Thanks for the help

    You asked for opinions, and got a few. Opinions based on the photos you provided.
    A tip from me, when you start demanding that people clear things up for you - in this case, for the sole purpose of protecting your financial interests - you will usualy end up pi**ing people off.
    The hobby, and forums, are about learning, taking an interest in what you have and at least trying to understand the item(s).
    Simply demanding an answer so that you can save money is not the right way to go about it.

    The sole purpose wasn't just to get my money back, but to also not have a FAKE!!! in my collection. Whatever happened to providing evidence when you call something a fake. It looks poorly made isn't very clear cut. I guess i will never get a clear answer on it.
    Maybe next time i should write (opinions with evidence to back it up).

    Thanks for the help, it's been very much appreciated.
