    I have no clue as to what to make of that Pin on this one either.
    This type of retaining pin is perfectly acceptable for a Mayer award.

    Atleast I got something right!
    As I look at it, it doesn't seem to be painted? There are two different grays.. Anyway this still could be just the metal showing.

    No chance. This one has been mucked about with if there are two different grey colours then it obviously has been painted. It's not worth the money you paid for it and I would seek an immediate refund and put the money towards a decent and untouched example of which there are plenty about.

    Thank Adrian! Atleast this thread will be good for future research on the pin of this style/marker.

    All lessons are valuable, unfortunately some are also expensive.

    Hello there,

    The badge has NOT been painted. It is an original, late-war zinc badge with anti-rotating pin installed onto the reverse.

    Hi William, but the reverse shows 2 colorations of grey. Looks like the part under the disc wasn't painted whilst the rest of the award does, IMO.
