    Stuart , thanks for the help it is very much appreciated. I compared this badge to an original (picture in this post) that I already have & spotted several of the differences which are obvious.The one I posted is from a dealers website & the asking price was a little low & I almost acted on emotion rather than common sense.I don't know why but I always have a difficult time with these 44's.Stuart have you ever considered publishing a book on this series of HJ awards ?

    Come on Stuart...follow the old road...the proven road..the chosen road.. IMAGES and ZERO text
    yes you can !!!!
    Use Jack Pia as a guide, show a pic of this badge, and a text saying: Gausieger badge, worn by Gausiegers!

    lol,your right there are so many bad books out there that are just pics and a lot of them are fakes lol, but sorry my knowledge is nowhere near enough for a book and i have never pretended it was lol,to do a book justice on these badges it would have to incorparate all the competitions from their inception, all the winners and participents badges plus and mainly all the actual workings of the competitons where they held what they involved etc etc etc , would take for ever to get all the info together and if you did would the interest be there for a book on just this one area i somehoow doubt it

    Weeeell then pick up your pen!
    Its so easy.... full page pictures with minute text, hell you could even write in Hebrew or Mandarin, just copy and paste any old Kak from the net, collectors dont bother to actually read the texts.. laminate each page as well, protects against collector-drool.

    Yeap, there are a few differenes with this type of badge.... but I also think that sooner than these badges will be brutally difficult to be spotted.

    Well, I dont know if Stu should make a book... but I will be more than happy with 20 or 30 pictures from his collection :d

    Take care

    Antonio
