    Hi greg,

    Take note of the very soft details on this badge, also the reverse indicates it's a cast piece that has been ground back heavily to remove casting bubbles and porosity. I'm wondering how thick the badge is after this process? Not enough I'm guessing.

    The design it's copied from is the 3rd pattern Juncker J3 with solid swastika( note unremoved material between the talons) in zinc. Unfortunately it does not match the rear set ups for this type, or for that matter any other Juncker badge and is a poor fake.

    Here's what it's attempting to copy:

    Hi Greg, unfortunately this is a fake award, the details are much to soft as they are the result of being cast from a copy mould of an original award. Leon.

    I can't tell my opinion since I don't have enough acknowledgement. But for me the details are better on the badge of greg49 that the one of Big Ned.
    The legs and the rivets for example.

    Hi sirn and welcome to the forum,

    Are you venturing that this may be an original piece, or just that in your opinion it's got better details but you have no idea if it's genuine or bogus other than that?
