    Thanks Harryamb2.
    I too know that the coffin shaped pin base plate is put on hundreds of the modern reproductions but this one has a large oval pin plate.
    If you look at the coffin plates they always have straight edges at both ends so I am still hoping that this is a good one
    All the best

    I think this is an original, if not horribly mixed up....

    Hello Tom, Thanks for your promising response
    I am fairly convinced that it is good but would like some more informed opinions.
    I typed flugmeldedienst in to google images and a shedfull of these badges turned up...mostly on Germanwarbooty (I don't know how good their stock is) which are exactly this badge.
    Many thanks
    Doug

    Thanks Tom,
    I did have a look at that thread earlier but I think the Aurich badges were poo pooed somewhere later on in the forum world.
    This badge has good provenance so I am still optimistically confident that it is good
    All the best

    I meant post #11, there's a link to WAF where they say that only ones marked like yours are original badges.

    It was from an ex vet collection that also included a Pforzheim 1st class bar...
