Original Arno Wallpach? Try a search for this maker on the forum, a few have been posted over time. You can compare them to this.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Adrian is correct. It is a very nice badge.........
Awesome, thanks. I'm glad I got one good badge out of the three I posted!
A good late-war badge!
Us and them - and after all we’re only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.

There are very good fakes from this variant, I don't say that yours is one of them, just that I don't recomend buying these makers badges. If you are a LGAB collector and want each makers than its fine, but if not, I would try to find another one from a more deirable maker like Juncker, Osang, RK etc.
This variant is the lowest quality, most probably late war product.
Thanks for the tip, I just got this one at a good price from a reputable dealer but that does'nt always mean the badge is original. As far as collecting I am just starting out and trying to find my main focus in a specific area.
