    Hello all,

    Just wanted to confirm that this badge is authentic, it looks like a perfectly good and textbook early issue Brehmer flak to me.

    A lovely early N/S Brehmer Luft Flak badge, nice one William.

    Hello again,

    I actually believe this is a more scarce tombak example as I see hints of brass coloration in the base metal; a neusilber base would not possess this trait. At any rate, a fine badge I believe!

    Hi William,


    I would agree with Ned here, imo a NS example. The usual formulation of NS is 60% copper, 20% nickel and 20% zinc, so based on the alloy mixture you can sometimes see the discoloration you mentioned.

    My first thoughts were tombak, I must admit. Nice badge either way. Stewy
