Volkswagen KDF Factory Foundation Badges

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThese two badges are common reproductions of this badge here. Don’t be fooled by these copies, the originals were always made from either a very light alloy or bakelite. If the badge is any kind of heavier metal then it’s a fake. Weigh it in your hand. If it is difficult to even feel it there then it may be an original.
