    I was at a Jubilee party last night and the host showed me his collection of British medals. Amongst them was this Juncker Flak badge.

    As I dont know much about them I said I would get it checked out here.

    Pin is missing but the quality looks ok

    Any comments welcome

    Many thanks

    Looks fine to me. Pity about the pin being broken.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Original Juncker badge, interestingly the same as mine shown on the forum a couple of times with a snapped or cut pin. I don't know if it's myth or reality that the Brits were only allowed to take broken badges so pins were often cut off to comply.
