Article about: This badge doesn't look quite right. The lug on the helmet seems too far up and at a different angle relative to the helmet pin. There are no makers mark on the reverse. Is this a fake?

    Hello Pablo
    This type with its sloppy looking hinge & pin appears on ebay regularly, & can be listed as reproduction or authentic depending on who is selling it.
    Personally I would give this one a miss.

    Regards

    I agree with Brett......The pebbling between the sword hilts also gives it away....Fake.
    Prost ! Steve.

    Does it appear too round?

    Appears too fake. This type of pin is a dead give-away.

    Maybe it's just me or the angle of the camera, but the overall shape
    looks distorted - 'out-of-round'. Still bogus though.........
    Regards,


    Steve.
