    Hi guys, is this maker for this badge type a rare one, read that this is a scarce variation to obtain?

    Original badge and at an attractive price, although I would like to see some better shots of the catch area as it may or may not have been repaired, the soldering on these is notoriously sloppy. That point needs quantifying first, but if it's good then yeah, go for it.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi Juan,

    Thanks for the new pic's, it explains the cheap asking price as this is a replaced catch. It should be a tombak "?" shaped one or less likely, a flat wired tombak catch that was fitted to a small round plate and is normally seen on the semi hollow Hobacher zinc Luft Flak but could be an interchangeable variation if necessary. These are shown below.

    Thanks Ned, as usual spot on, this badge I bought it already sometime ago, got it for 180 Euros gosh, that "?" shaped catch looks highly fragile, guess these broke very easily and thus the reason why mine is replaced?, just guessing

    They're generally pretty sturdy, typical on the early war badges of all types, especially tombak ones. But of course they can and did break off from day to day wear and in the field as well, so it's not at all uncommon as we see here every day someone posting awards with replaced hardware.

    It's interesting to note that some late war manufactured badges that used the "?" hook tried crimping them in, but this often didn't work very well and we see cases of factory repaired badges where the catch has been soldered in over the crimp marks to ensure a secure fit.
