ID:	592897 Hello to all! I wanted to hear some opinions on the authenticity of this badge please. It is maker marked "A" on the reverse center behind pin in raised letter, and on the reverse of the upper left wing of the eagle. Compared to others in previous threads I think it may have a chance? Overall the badge has very nice detail and patina but unfortunately the catch is broke. Looking foreword to any and all opinions. As usual many thanks in advance and best regards.

    I'm not a flak badge collector, but I do have one but not this make, and from what I can see I would not buy this one. The detail is not great at all. Lets see what others have to say.

    I'm no expert on these either but the eagle has a comedy head, also the swastika is as rough as hell!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Pictures are a bit limited and too dark to be 100%, but it stands a chance imo, you just need decent shots that are focussed, straight on and taken in daylight.

    Hi Gunny,

    The head is correct for a late war zinc Assmann flak. Finish of the cross is also thereabouts for this late period.

    Regards, Ned.

    Really? Wow, I wouldn't have touched this thing with a ten foot pole. Good thing I put in the ol' "lets see what others say." I'll be quiet now.

    Looks like a good Assmann to me with possibly a repaired catch ?
