Anyone have any thoughts on Gibello's badge? I'm not convinced by it, especially the eagle attachment, unfinished rivets or just plain fake?
It certainly looks acceptable but I really don't know much about these badges or the details to look for.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I like you Adrian, the Erdkampfabzeichen seems a very complicated way to back this kind of medal, is easier and cheaper to do it all of a piece as the original, for that reason I think that this is an original article. The item if the echo is set based two-piece Tami has support for the eagle and the eagle after it is installed on your support.
The LGAB is a fake based on a Arno Wallpach badge.
Definitive appraisal from Anubis, but would like to add that detail on LGAB adler is atrocious.
