    Hi,

    for me this badge looks OK. One-picece construction by Arno Walpach Salzburg. Version with dark lacquered clouds. Pos. 8.02. i Weber's book.

    The AWS Erdkampfabzeichen is faked to an excellent degree, and this badge is unfortunately one of them. Note the "flash" on the reverse edge at both 10 and 12 o'clock, that's the killer. It's found on a well known fake badge and is always identical as they are cast from the same mold. If the badge were genuine then there would be no two the same. So, take a look at this proven fake and compare it to the OP's badge, can you see any differences.....??? I can't.

    Ned is right again - and my first impression was wrong

    There is one more characteristic sign for this fake, I suppose: a sratch on 11, repeated on both pictures (white marked)

    reagrds - and sorry for confusion...

    Ned and Tomasz have nailed it, a well known copy I'm afraid. Leon.
