    hi ado, i believe this badge to be a fake. i have never seen an example of this award with a German style pin-back. this style of pin is of the postwar type used on many copy german war badges .any genuine examples i have seen over the years were zinc and have had either 2 central short flat pins or a set of 2 top and bottom pins that are folded over to secure it to the uniform. its a very rare award not many made ,issued or awarded...cheers Paul

    I believe that original should have stamping on backside. BRACA KNAUS ZAGREB should be stamped in, which indicates manufacturer.
