    Good original piece, not sure on the maker so I'll let others identify it. The price is OK.

    Good unmarked zinc JB&Co IMO.

    I agree with Janos, a good JB&Co from the Gablonz area.

    I have now received the abzeichen.
    Thank you very much for the help.
    The badge is unmarked.
    Would you mind telling me how you determine it to be a JB & Co?
    Not that I doubt it, Im just very curious as to how the experts work.

    Hello

    Several factors are involved in determining who the maker is of the various combat badges. The maker marked examples give one a starting point and helps with the unmarked examples that match the mm ones (as is the case with yours). Hardware is another way to find matches and we can find clues in looking at all the combat badges...GAB's, PAB's and IAB's.

    Without going to deep, I will stick with your new acquisition being an unmarked JB&Co.

    Some background;
    There are the unmarked examples like yours and marked examples with the mm JB&Co on the reverse. If you compare yours to my example you will see the obverse details are a match. The ball hinge hardware on the reverse is also a match. It is pretty safe to say that these two are related.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Indeed it is. Though you claimed it to be a cursory walk-through, you managed to give a satisfactory explanation.
    Thank you very much.
    Do we know the reason for some badges to be marked and then some others from the same maker not?
