    Hi Bojan,

    I'm pretty sure this is a quality fake. As you say, the rear set up is not correct for this massive zinc F&R GAB, it actually seems to copy the semi hollow type they manufactured and I've never seen that set up on a solid badge. Furthermore, the font of the makers mark is very soft and flattened, not defined and crisp like originals. The pitting on the reverse and on the swastika arms all point to this being a cast badge, I would under no circumstances have this piece in my collection as there are far too many red flags.

    Regards, Ned.
