    Hello guys,

    I need your knowledges today about that badge.
    It seems to be a 2nd pattern eagle.
    I feel it not too bad but... I'd like to be sure for such an item and luft badges are usually not my area!

    Thank you.

    I like it.

    In my opinion it's a good example of the 2nd pattern Assmann Beobachterabzeichen with Tombak eagle and the thick N/S wreath. But still best wait for other informed opinions.

    Hi Greg,

    Yeah, best wait for a fresh set of eyes on this. The one thing that concerns me slightly is how sharp the obverse detail and finish is on the bird and wreath, but then it's showing every appearance of never having been worn so that could well explain that!

    Yes, we could say it's a mint badge.
    I've already saw such rivets, catch, hinge on another badge. Only the pin is a bit long, but I don't know if it's a clue of fake or not.

    looks a very nice original unused badge.

    Hi Greg,

    i have to dissagree here. This is a close copy imo...well made, but enough problems in the details. Spend no money for it!

    Wrong shape in details of eagle and wreath. Wrong riveting...close, but not how it shoult look. Wrong finish of the wreath. Set-up is also not good imo.

    It makes the badge not better. Fake is fake....no Chance for this bird.
