    Hi, I've never posted in this section before as I focus on American items. However, I picked up these two badges this week from someone who said that they were veteran bring backs. I also bought the Kyu gunto that he said his father brought back from the Pacific. I don't know much about these, so I spent the last week searching every thread on the forum to determine if they are original or not.

    Hopefully you folks can confirm whether they are or not. Thanks in advance!

    First up, the Luftwaffe Flakkampfabzeichen

    This is an original E. Ferdinand Wiedmann Flak badge with the correct "lily pad" hinge.
    Could you please post a full reverse photo?

    I agree with Ralph...It's a very nice original badge and looks in a lightly used condition.

    That's a nice addition to your collection Beast

    A superb example, very rarely are these Wiedmann zincers seen with so much finish remaining. Leon.
