Erdkampfabzeichen der Luftwaffe
Hello, new to the forum. I recently bought a 4 pieces from the granddaughter of a WWII vet. The story was that he brought them back from Germany. The assault badge just makes me nervous because I know that there are reproductions out there, and I most definitely have been lied to before. I tried to take a few detailed pictures, I really WANT to believe its real but I'm sure there is someone here that has a more expert eye.

Welcome to the forum, I myself cannot comment on the GAB . It's best to place the tinnies in a separate thread.
thank you both for the info, and I edited the thread to put the tinnies in a new thread like suggested. I'm relieved to find out the Luftwaffe badge is real, It does look as though the catch had been removed and then reattached....the same thing on the tinnies. My guess is the Vet removed all the catches to display them on a flat surface then later put them back on?
out of curiousity, what do you look for when determining real from a fake? Also without a maker mark is there anyway to figure out who made it?
quality detail,unless its maker mark I would not have a clue,makers don't interest me much.
