Is this pilots badge real?

Article about: Hey Guys, I was wondering if anyone knew if this pilots badge was real. It looks like an FLL to me but the wings dont seem cut out enough. Any info would be appreciated Cheers, Shaneos3

    I can now see what you mean by the "type face", i have found a picture of an engraved para badge brought back from Holland and the engraving looks a lot less fancy.

    Hi John (& Stewy), Thanks for all your info and I like your ROAG badge, who do you believe made it? I think if the engraving is not period done on the Pilot & observers then the badges are probably not worth keeping. I will post pic of catch ASAP. Off the subject, here is my ROAG and more of the Lufty Para given to officer for 1940 taking of the Bridges of Moerdyjk.

    Yep...Even better from the front
    2 very nice badges there Shaneos2.

    Getting back the the engraved ones, They are still nice original badges IMO. And who is to say that the guy never had them engraved at a later date. It doesn't make them any less desirable, but difficult to sell on other than for the price of normal ones. JMO

    and they are not cheap badges to start with.

    I can't add anything really intelligent to this thread except that if those are good badges-then you got some mighty fine snags there. I have only one Pilots badge in my collection which is a mint and absoultely beautiful example of an Assmann made badge. The makers mark is a stylized "A" and the badge itself is a very early quality made badge made using Silver-Nickel metals.
