    Default ErdkampfAbzeichen der LW real?

    Hi gentlemen,

    I'm still looking for an ErdkampfAbzeichen to buy, I have found this one below. Despite the hook and probably even the pin has been repaired or replaced, I like its global aspect. Is it a genuine one?
    Any opinion would be welcome,
    thank you by advance, regards,

    Pierre

    It looks like a zinc Juncker LGAB with the riveted nickel silver eagle to me. I would like to know if the flat wire catch is on a baseplate as it's not obvious from the pic's, perhaps flooded out by the solder? I've not seen one without a small round plate or the more rectangular type with rounded corners so would be interested to know as a free standing catch is not a known variant as far as I can recall. Other than that it looks O.K.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thank you very much Ned,
    Sadly I don't have any other picture. I had to be fast to make my mind as it was on sale on an auction. The bids were going up and I have preferred not to buy it. I'll wait for an other one, without repair traces in order to be sure of what I buy.

    regards,
    Pierre

    Smart move!
    I do NOT like the swastika in the first photo! Looks krappy as hell and incomplete. In your later photo you have it blocked out so there is no close up.

    Ned has nailed the maker of this one and sarge is correct it really is not a good badge.
    Both the hinge and hook have been resoldered at some time in the past and the NS eagle is bent out of shape.
    I do spot a round base plate beneath the hook on your 5th picture but I also see a pool of new solder.

    I guess if I needed a Juncker made badge as a filler and this was cheap enough I would add it to my collection.

    All the best
