12/27/17 - This is an original WW2 production Nazi criminal police ("Kriminalpolizei") Kripo badge. These badges were issued to the police inspectors who were detective "agents" for the nazi party - to ensure nazi ideals were upheld within the community. These were feared agents in Germany. This badge was inspected and guaranteed as original by Don Bible. He no longer writes certificates of authenticity for these, but Legacy can write one for $50 additional charge. The badge is in excellent condition and serial numbered 11761. Guaranteed original and authentic.
