    I would not buy this on the strength of these pictures, they're nowhere near good enough to determine for sure if this particular Assmann badge is good or not, they're faked that well. I have concerns that the set up may not be correct, and also the lack of mould numbers are a possible worry as well. It also appears that the eagle may have been re soldered or brazed back onto the wreath, but only better pic's can really help here to give a correct assesment IMO.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi, I am not keen on this one myself, I think it is a mould "1" wreath but the 1 is very weak if it is even there at all? It is either a messed with and re-finished original or an out and out fake, either way I would pass. Leon.

    A wise decision IMO, these aren't very rare and another example will soon come along without these potential issues. Patience Grasshopper.
