    I have this same one. It is a fake.

    The obverse photos leave much to be desired, Among other things, the talons are wrong. The claws on IMME come down much further into the swastika.

    This is a large file sized photo (9megs). Double click to enlarge and you can expand it. It is in the lower right corner. This is my collection of past mistakes....

    But I'm still learning these so wait for others. I am always happy when I wrong and something turns out to be good

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Reverse maker mark appears to be incorrect as well. The B in Berlin should have a flat bottom. I'm learning and don't study fakes but I'm sure others will be around to provide more insightful details. I'm just comparing to a few originals and not liking what I see (plus as noted, I think I have the same one.)

    Always wait for other opinions.

    Michael is correct in his opinions regarding this badge, it's a known fake and one of those most often seen. Just a look at the reverse of the wreath shows the rough, pitted finish so typical in cast badges. The case also appears to be bad, an example known as the 'Lattice case' design, but pic's of the outside showing the text are required to be certain. Here's another slightly better finished example of the same fake badge as both shown above.

    Well done Michael, I have only just seen this post so am a touch late, but you have clearly pointed out all the issues that sadly spotlight this one as a fake. Leon.

    We learn from our mistakes Leon. That's how I knew this was bad as soon as I saw it.
