    Not being an expert at all i'd dare to say it's bad...
    The letters seem out of shape and detail and it looks "aged" in a way.
    Also the prongs on the back is, when compared to what i've seen irl and in books, are not placed correct.
    Don't like the patina overall.

    Then again..i'm not an expert on these

    Hi Eddy, this is a very poor copy of a rare gorget. The basic shape is badly done.

    The Luftwaffe Feldgendarmerie gorget is the same as the Heer version, apart from the eagle. Several original Heer versions have been shown on the forum in the past. ( I own one myself ) Study these and you will see how bad this one is.

    Cheers, Ade.
