Strewth, you guys slay me.... just when I think I know what is good and what is bad you all go gooey over this one.
Lucky I don't collect qualification badges, I would've gone right in boots n' all with a big thumbs down as being a bad cast fake!!
So, why is the quality of these so unlike the crispness of other badges ( especially Junkers? ) with such a soft head & wreath and rough swaz??
Damn, I'm so confused now, I think I'm gonna stick with my equipment and relics .........

Thank you Ned for your spotting!
I am asking so stupid, because i don`t know how many books, forums etc. i have searched in the last days for Juncker zinc Army paras. I know of course from the cut out´s examples of the Panzerkampfabzeichen, Infanteriesturmabzeichen and so on, but i couldn`t find no example with this tallon shape at Juncker zinc badges.
Looks for me too factory made and on the other hand i like the badge too.
