    Default Fliegerschutzenabzeichen für Bordfunker und Bordschutzen?

    Hello all,
    This badge, to me, looks bad. The only reason why I'm posting it here is because it has come in a lot with a number of other German militaria that is original. So what is it... original late war unmarked, or just a bad fake?
    The arrows/lightning bolts in the eagles talons appear to have flattened edges and are rather 'dull' in comparison to similar badges. The catch also appears to be very thick, and the overall construction appears to be cheap.

    I hope the pictures are good enough!

    Whats the verdict?

    Thanks for all the help,
    Finn

    Thanks guys, you confirmed my thoughts! The only thing that made me raise an eyebrow was that it came in an original lot.
    Thanks!
