[QUOTE=Malko;1504088]Hello to everyone !
I need your opinion about this Blockade Runner's Badge.
Is any possibility to be a good one?
Not this time I'm afraid....

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.

It appears to be cast, rarely a good sign
Wrong metal , wrong pin etc
Sorry to say,it's a fake.
Looks like a casting from a "dishback" Schwerin with incorrect reverse hardware.
That flat catch is also a red flag...commonly found on postwar badges...
Sorry Nik to see that it is fake. Didnot feell that it is real to.hope you didnt buy it
Hello Nick and thanks all of you for your posts.
From now on first i picture the items, post it here and then i open my wallet ))
I have good lessons from the past times with fake militaria !!
This is what a real one looks like from this maker.
As you can see, there is no comparison.
