This is a small lot of three original Bulgarian fascist badges from the period leading up to World War II.
Off all period international collaboaration and fascist parties, the Bulgarian badges rank among the very rarest of World War II.
We got these three together, and would like to keep them together, so offer them as a lot. They come originally from the legendary Dodkins collection, that stood in large part model for Littlejohns Foreign Legion’s books. Of interest to mention is that the yellow Stalinski stickpin is THE ACTUAL ONE that stood model for the drawing in Littlejohns book from 1986. This is almost 50 years ago, and since then no other has been seen on the collectorsmarket. To call these badges rare is probably the understatement of the century!
To the best of my knowledge the three here for sale badges represent the following parties:
- U.B.N.L Union of the Young National Legion member badge
- N.Z.F (Nationale Zadruga Faczisti) member badge, under leadership of Alexander Stalinski
- N.S.B.A.P sympathizers badge, under leadership of Christo Kuntscheff (which explains the capital “K”?)

This is as far as i know the first time these badges are ever offered. This is a once in a lifetime chance for any rare World War II badge collector.
