    I am not the most knowledgable person here, but I believe that all three of these are copies.
    Unless you know for sure, best to post photos before you buy to save yourself some money.
    Sorry,

    Hi Brad and welcome!
    I don't know much about the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen but I do know the one marked Juncker is a poorly cast fake. As for the others - I'll let those who know comment upon them.

    I don't like the pin on the bronze, and the catch on the one in the middle opens to the wrong side, and even if this one is real, it is repaired at best.

    Stewy or fischer will know for sure but I think Schuco badges have the catch opening to the left?

    Hello
    As stated, the first is a fake based on the FCL design and marked Juncker to enhance it's aesthetics.
    The second is an attributed ShuCo design with a repair to the hinge.
    The third looks to be a good Friedrich Linden marked FLL with block hinge and directly soldered "?" catch. The hinge might have a repair but close up pics would be needed to determine this.

    I hope they were not too expensive.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Hi Guys

    Just a point about the ShuCo variant. As most examples found do open to the left, this is not a factor for authenticity.

    ShuCo examples are found with both left and right opening catches.

    Fischer's correct. I think the FLL's original & not repaired. They were known for slopply soldering. Stewy

    There you go, I stand corrected. Don is the one to know.
    Sorry for my mis-information.
