    I think that this badge shares all of the characteristics of the 'massive' variant. It is just the fact that nobody has been able to prove that this variant indeed did exist pre-May 1945 is all.

    I'd still like to see the weight of this one...but if it lined up with other accepted variants I would be OK with it. That being said...I wouldn't buy one though!

    Of the originals that I've seen and handled, the most noticeable difference between them and this one's design is the length of the sword blade showing between the skull top and the snake body. Originals have a very thin section showing.

    No not at all. Massive BKA's did exist. I just don't think this one is original. Stewy

    Here is a good read about these flat backed badges. It seems that some believe that the reverse hardware looks more like S&L.

    * I tried to link out to the GCA but it showed up as an error!

    The majority of things that come out of that country are fakes.....

    As far as the badge that started the thread, the reverse hardware almost reminds me of FLL badges.
