    These Walpach Badges are the only ones I trust due to their simplicity, lol...It's the riveted badges that I struggle with, lol...
    I studied the heck out of these before buying mine...These are usually cheaper too!
    cheers Friends,

    Hello Casey,
    it is not a badge I would want in my collection. Even though I do believe it to be a good Arno Wallpach (AWS) badge

    I am assuming it is a ground dug badge but just look at that massive amount of bubbling on the leading wing which has left cavernous holes in it. I am not too sure that could be attributed to zinc pest as from what I see it has different characteristics.

    There are far better examples out there to add to a collection at a reasonable price.

    The Wallpach single piece zinc badges have been copied to almost perfection.

    All the best
    Doug
