    Yes, these are HEAVILY faked. The "CE Juncker" (should not have a serif on the 'J') mark is wrong, the bow is incorrect, the tank is not right, silver content marks are not legitimate in that combination (and poorly stamped), and the detail is not up to standard...not to mention the screwy back plate (at the top). I think I see evidence of the "tick" mark or die flaw on the lower right side of the hinge well on the reverse. That alone is a strong indicator of a bogus badge...in combination with the other discrepancies - it is a death blow. This same flaw is found on absolute fake aviation badges as well.

    The store is in Gerard PA I don’t know what is the owner name, to me he don’t know much about most of the items, I think that he just did not knew that it was copy.

    You know, I have found that a lot of antique store and military outlet owners truly don't know what they have (that can also work to THEIR disadvantage). Granted, one should know what they are selling, but not every person who sales militaria is knowledgeable.

    I have met some very kind store owners that had cases filled with fake militaria, and the impression that I got from many of them, is that they really had no idea on the items because they were uneducated...not because they were crooks. Some folks really have no idea, and just go off of what they are told.

    I have always found that the people with whom I had a good impression of, always thankfully accepted my evaluations when I told them that the items were not good. In fact, they wanted to know why, so that they would know what to look for in the future.
