    It' a genuine 1st pattern Juncker Luft Flak to me, but the pin seems too thick which means it's been replaced. The catch is certainly a later replacement. I personally would avoid this badge as the collectability value is seriously compromised.

    Regards, Ned.

    I'm with Ned on this one, definitely a replaced catch, it also looks as though it has been quite heavily polished in the past as the details have become a touch indistinct. Leon.
