    Hello guys,

    A buddy of mine has asked my opinion on the following GAB. I don't own any and was wondering what the general opinion was on this one. He only sent me the one, front veiw, picture so I don't know how much info anyone can give me but l figure someone could give me some information possibly. Click image for larger version.

    My assumption is that it is a late war zinc, if it is real that is, but that would be just a total guess on my part. I can't tell if it is just the photo or not, but the arms of the swastika don't appear to be totally simetrical.

    So does anyone have a little info for me?

    Thank you for your time and knowledge.

    Hello Hummel,
    here's my thoughts...It looks like an original period badge but with that one picture it is not worth making a guess at the maker.
    There were 30 odd makers of the GAB some with multiple variants.
    If you get a picture of the back it would narrow it down somewhat.
    Cheers

    It could be an example of a Steinhauer & Luck GAB, but better straight on focussed pic's front and back are required. I stress, STRAIGHT ON!

    Mainly I wanted to be able to tell my buddy if it was period or not. I will get more photos from him to post so you have more to work with.

    Thank you Saladin and Big Ned for the help so far.

    Thanks for the new pic. It's a genuine solid zincer by Schauerte & Hohfeld.
