    Yes, I am sure that is a good one Juan.
    Pictures are not the best I don't see any problems.
    Backing behind the swastika looks a little peculiar but that may just be a variation of manufacturer.
    I'll see if I can find some pictures of the ones that I have (may be on my home computer rather than here)

    All the best

    Hi Juan, I would pass on it.

    Take a look at the wreath around the date.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This is a well made and well known fake, avoid.

    Mmmm...I don't know what you can see from the pictures Ade. They are a bit too small and not enough detail for me to make a good judgement but the overall construction looks okay.
    Anyway I have pictures of 4 of mine here in work:

    Here is a silver:

    At least it will give you some idea what to look for Juan.
    If you need any more I think I have another couple at home.

    Thanks Doug, no worries mate, I appreciate your help and interest. Bloody fakes, there is no end to it. I have requested good quality pictures to the seller which I will post, just want to make sure that the analysis is conducted with good pictures and not these cra**y ones

    As for now, this stays stand still, following Ade s and Ned s good advice

    Ok Ned, that is interesting, If this badge was sold as a fake, how much would it be? The reason why I ask is because, the seller sells this one at 170 Euros, and I have seen these ones, good ones sold at over 400 Euros, well if this one was a fake, maybe for free I would get it but the seller paying the posting cost. Once I get pictures, I will post them

    You need good clear close ups straight on of the wreath, especially the date which should be at the bottom of the pic's supplied. There was very little deviation in the construction of the cloth crosses, yet this has a lot that are not atypical. The rounded corners of the swastika, the silver thread that highlights it appears not to be tacked down on the corners as originals are (see Doug's photo's) but are continuous, the black infill stitching of the swastika is not a match, neither is the white backing cloth that resembles corduroy, and the grey stitching of the starburst, all these things are not usually found singly, never mind altogether. Good photo's of the wreath will seal it's fate I think, and I also think the vendor knows it....

    Regards, Ned.

    They are available from less than £15 upwards to around £40.
