    Default Fake: Fallschirmschützenabzeichen der Luftwaffe - Luftwaffe Paratroopers Badge.

    I'm probably not the first to post this badge but didn't see it in older threads......so thought I would show it.

    Had this for many years. Bought it as a repro hoping to put it on a uniform display some day...

    Even in my novice eyes this is really bad.

    There does appear to be a stamp on the back. Very faint. Looks to be an "AK".

    Would love to hear your feedback.

    You are dead right about it being a fake.

    Can't say I've ever seen this type before, the eagle is very distinctive. It probably has mumps.

    Actually, chicken pox!

    And they couldn't even figure out the correct arrangement of the rivets!
