    welcome to the forum, and im no expert but from the examples ive seen i dont see maker stamps on the back as well the rivets look odd and the hoop for the ribbon is usually welded behind the eagles head. I would wait and see what others have to say but i have my doubts, where did you get this?

    The problem with these is their so rare that theres not a whole lot of info on them. only 767 were issued

    I think this is a 70s fake by Weske.
