    Default Silver Nahkampfspange FLL: Help on this one....Real or fake...?

    Hi, I am new to this forum, but not to collecting and have been collecting mainly Waffen SS items and have been out of medals for a few years.

    I picked this one up at an estate sale and it looks good to me. Just want to be sure. It has a magnetic back plate and the detail is very high quailty.

    Please give me your input.

    Thank you.

    Crimping is not right for a FLL, also look the catch, the long pin, the material of the close combat clasp.I show you two original one.

    I have a question: Is crimping on the back ok with other makes? How about a shorter pin than even your examples?

    You mean other makers?
    The whole shape of pin is wrong, just check it.
    Those 4 circle I signed is the most give away and the way how the catch is fit to the clasp.
