    Default Fake Flugzeugführerabzeichen - provenance ?

    My friend brought this badge - he's thinking that it is an original. I'm on 99% convinced that it is a fake. I do not like the body of an eagle and the right wing is weird. But I have not see fake such this, so I better ask.
    And by the way, I wonder from where is these copies? I know the Polish copy from before about 3 years ago, but they were much worse. Is from Pakistan maybe? I think that this could almost fool someone.

    Sorry about the photos, it was dark.

    It's a fake one, and not a very good fake either I'm afraid

    Hi, you are correct, this is a fake, the pin and rivets are giveaways in particular, but the overall look of the badge is poor as it does not appear to even be in the correct base metal. Leon.

    Thanks for all the comments, but I knew it was fake. The question was rather about its origin - Polish, Pakistani ...?
    Anyway, today I learned an interesting and disturbing information. My friend from the Czech Republic, he wrote me that in Jablonec (Gablonz in deutsch) were found the original moulds of some German badges. Who found them and what happened to them did not already know. You will understand what it might mean - perfect copies, using the right material virtually indistinguishable. Unfortunately, I do not know anything more.
