Need help with Allgemeines Sturmabzeichen
I want to buy this ASA with no markers mark.
Is it a good one or fake. Thanks for your answers.

That's the Staegmaier attempt at the RK Ball Hinge badge. It's based on the die 'A' and 'B' type, but there are tell tale flaws on both the obverse and reverse sides that give it away. A dangerous piece all the same.
Example, a noticable flaw on the breast feathers.
