I saw this lying in a bin of odds and ends at some hole in the wall store marked "Nazi Dogtag" and priced at $20. I had no way to truly verify it at the time, but I recognized the title as what we English speakers call "Gestapo". Recognizing instantly this would be much more valuable than a simple tag, I picked it up without thought. And that was the day I bought my first counterfeit.
Had this been real, it would be the chain token to the Gestapo commander of a town, region, or other location (identified by the number stamped on the back). Real, these are extremely rare as their owners discarded them in hopes of disappearing from Nazi ties after the war.
This particular one however is a Polish knock-off from 1993. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, many ex-Soviets turned to counterfeiting to make a quick buck. These were made with original material on older machines and to extremely high detail. Without going into exact science about it, the only visual queue it's fake is the number stamped under the Waffenmark.
Hundreds of this batch were sold to collectors and museums in the 90s for thousands of dollars. Today, the value is in the $35 range, and mostly because of the novelty of the story.
I only hold on to it because of the novelty as a Cold War item and a unique place holder among other parts of my collection. Photo by the Author.
Shithole Führer himself just finished vomiting fascist rhetoric.

From June of last year! We are still seeing family separations, and things have gotten worse! Deplorable conditions, children living is squalor while in Federal custody, federal rule changes under consideration to gut protections for children.

Anytime you willingly split up families fleeing danger for political gains, you are participating in evil. It's really simple. Time for a gut check America. Fascism or freedom? Which way are you going? What are you made of? What matter do you serve?
La Russia non si abbasserà mai allo schifo dei nazisti e al nazismo.
Portiamo in alto i nostri grandi ideali schiacciando i pensieri violenti e pericolosi di queste persone deviate.
Throwback 30/09/18: When the #merkelfanhub in my home town used 🌈 gay pride symbols to demonstrate against what they call "brown/nazi" #afd and got support from the media, teachers, officials etc. for their #nazishit. #fuckmerkelfans💔#stopfuckingupkids
