    Default Bandenkampfabzeichen for opinions...

    Hi all. I received these photos from a gentleman who has quite a few Luftwaffe related items passed to him from his father. I know how difficult these are to come across so I wanted to post it here for opinions. Hopefully someone here has experience with these and can provide some guidance as to whether or not it's a good one. I can compare it all day long to the examples on sites like, www.military-awards.eu and Anti-Partisan Badge of the Heer, and to me it looks good. But I've learned from dagger collecting that the real experience comes from handling them, so hopefully someone here has handled the real deal and can tell me what they think about this one. If additional photos are needed, please let me know.

    Can't tell what grade it is, but I think on the pictures supplied this could well be a genuine half hollow Juncker type 1. You need better shots of the reverse with the pin closed, close photo's of the hinge from all angles and the recessed area it sits in including the little 'tab' at the top of the badge. The catch needs the same treatment, different angles front, side etc.

    The obverse looks pretty good to me, but some close shots dead straight on, of the skull and snakes (especially the left ones) wouldn't hurt.

    I think it has a good chance, but you need someone like Joachim (Kradmelder) to take a squint as he has a lot more experience in these badges, I think he's got two!

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks for the feedback Ned. Hopefully Kradmelder finds this thread. Maybe I'll try and ping him as well. In the meantime I'll see what I can do about getting more photos.

    Try a search too. Joachim has posted his badges here before.

    I like also what i can see.But a pic with a closed pin would be very good as Ned stated.Ned you made a good job!

    When we compare my APB with the badge of dzyner,we can see a few details they are looking identical.These are important fingerprints of the APB`s made by Juncker.

    But i think the tools of this two APB`s was different.Please have a look for example to the head of the snakes.Juncker used a few different tools for the production of the APBs.

    Hi Joe,

    The little 'pimple' caused by mold flash you indicate with the red arrow is one of the main reasons I liked this badge. It just doesn't appear on any of the fake Juncker APB's i've seen. There are other subtle differences I know, the snakes snout, skull eye sockets etc. to name a few, but that does seem to be noticable in a remarkable number of original badges, maybe not all, but nevertheless, if it's there it's a good sign!

    I wonder how much it is?

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi Ned,

    i see you spend a lots of time for study the APB`s.And you are a collector with a very good knowing of different collecting fields.So it is for you not a big problem for study every badges.I think the working of the APB`s is not ended.So i spend also often time to study this badges.A lot of askings are open to this time imo.

    Here for example my type 2 APB.The red arrow fingerprints are missing!But for sure a 100% good badge....

    Bad to the bone Ned.My english is so bad.I hope you understand what i mean guys!
