    Looks like a 2 rivet GWL late war production zink badge.

    Hi guys

    Are you sure,that this Erdkampfabzeichen is a good one?I see some red flags.The GWL Erdkampfabzeichen are very rare and not often to find.I have pics from a original one in my database.Please compare it with the item in the thread.The rivets look wrong,pin to long and thiner at a original.Also the finish looks not good.Toolmark at the pin is also missing.

    It is only my opinion!!!!

    Regards

    The rivets do look a mess Joachim, you're right. I was thinking they may have been re-tightened?

    If that first one is bad, then it's a very good fake, but I don't know, IMO still good.
    There are slight differences. Wait to see how this goes.

    That's a possibility Adrian, would explain the enlarged "holes"
