    I would pass on this one if its not in your collection yet. Wiedman is a very common maker, the condition of the abdge is not great, I am not even not sure that the whole badge is good as the observe looks very poor too, to me the hardwere is definitely not match to Fischer's example.

    Hi Guys

    Thanks for the additional pics, these show the details much better

    Like Hans, your new pics have left me with more concerns about this one.

    In looking at the reverse, the strange excess of material on the end of the bayonet tip with what looks to be file marks. File marks along the right side of the wreath.
    I do not like the badge pin, looking too thin and wrong shaped. The sheet metal hinge is odd shaped and appears too think.

    There are a few obverse details that appear different to me when compared to known originals. Here is a side by side comparison.

    I am leaning toward a cleverly crafted fake. Wish I had this one in hand.
    Any chance you could post the weight in grams?

    I also agree with Hans in that most of the Wiedmann examples are relatively common (a few are rare) and would wait for an unquestionable original.

    Best regards, fischer

    Thanks guys,as i thought at the beginning of the thred,that hardware set up just seemed to poor for an original even if it were a late war example.
