    So is it a genuine badge or a fake? It looks suspicious to me. In any event, if it's a copy I guess we could keep this thread/pics for reference.

    Thanks for any help.

    regards, mitch

    Hi Mitch,

    You are right to have your concerns, this is a copy, and not a very convincing one either.

    Thanks for the replies!, I've not bought this of course. I suppose I could 5 bucks for it, since I don't own a real one.

    Yes, so true. I bought a pile (over 100 oz.) of sterling silver flatware from this customer and he had that cross to show me as well. I my store I have a lot of militaria displayed all around the store (although we are a jewelry store!) and have been here 38 years. So people see what all is on the walls and so on, and tell me "oh; I have one of those that uncle so and so brought home from the war!" And I end up buying a lot of good stuff!!

    Good idea on displaying items in your store. The daggers look great.

    Cheers, Ade.
