    seen lots of fakes of this badge but not with this setup so I think you may be right Glenn.

    Hi Glenn,
    looks like a reproduction to me.
    A few reasons:
    I have never seen a genuine buntmetal badge with a hook that has a baseplate as fitted to zinc badges.

    Original badges had a silvered wreath and blackened eagle. The example you posted looks as though it has bnever been coloured/blackened.

    The obverse looks to be slightly flattened in the area in front of where the stamp has been placed...That was some heavy hammer whack.

    As far as I am aware there are only two accepted variants of this badge made by Juncker and this isn't one of them

    Hope this helps

    Doug
