    Default Another Abzeichen Für Blockadebrecher, real or fake?

    Hello again all,
    Not a collector of combat badges. I've had this badge for quite a while, have gotten mixed reviews, mostly bad but figured I'd put it up here for more opinions. I have been told that the makers mark shouldn't be as even as shown on mine. I don't remembe what else apparently was wrong with it but in any case I put it here for info and opinion. I was told on one of the forums that the mini and the case might be original. As I said I don't collect combat badges so any help and info is appreciated.

    Going by the neat and uniform makers mark I would say fake. Compare to the example Nick posted a day or two ago. Original makers marks are don't have perfectly aligned font.

    Adrian is correct, here is an example of a good one. Look carefully and the differences are apparent. Note the catch plate too.

    Thanks to all of you for your comments. You have confirmed my suspicions about the originality of this item. Nice to have forums like this and knowledgable members who are willing to share their information with others.
    thanks again,
