    Default The Controversial Badges.

    Does anyone have an example of one (or more) of the 'controversial' badges?
    The Balloon Observer (Balloonbeobachterabzeichen), Luftwaffe Sea Battle badge (Seekampfabzeichen), Luftwaffe Tank Battle badge (Luftwaffepanzerkampfabzeichen), Naval Combat Clasp (Marine Frontspange) - not to be confused with the U-boots-Frontspange - to name a few.

    If you have one, don't be shy, post them up for us to see!

    I'll kick off with the Balloonbeobachterabzeichen and marked J Godet Berlin. Bought many years ago before I knew any better!
