JFS is what it should say!
I am not going to say good or bad as I know to little.
Always looking for Belgian Congo stuff!
@ stulka f
Thanks for the confirmation on the Maker Mark being JFS.
Hi Cake Eater
As stuka have said.The maker mark is JFS (Josef Feix Gablonz an der Neiße).I like,what i can see with this photos.It is always hard,to make a good job with photos that a part unsharp.Maker mark and the area around the hinge are unsharp.There are very good high end copys around.Also a sharp photo from the catch could us help.
I will try again with my little Sony camera however it is so sensitive that it will only focus on the large parts of the badge.
After all the research I have done cross referencing other Badges online, in books and hands on inspection by various dealers ~ I am 100% positive it is genuine.
I was more looking to see opinions on the current market value of such a piece.
Thanks for all your help.
I agree with Joachim. I like what I see so far but better photos would help. Have you tried using something to stabilize your camera when you take photos? I use the macro setting and a table top tri-pod...I'm not saying to go out and buy one...but maybe you can find something to use like a stack of books or something like that. I'd also turn the flash off...use a room like a bathroom that is generally white, small and bright.
Just some ideas...
