    The Swastika looks rather odd!

    Not sure if it´s real oldered, or chemical oldered, but the shape and hole of the rivets are looking strange.....

    Those are my thoughts exactly. It certainly appears to have been artificially aged to an alarming degree that raises a red flag for me. And the strange sunken rivets are not something I'm familiar with either.

    I have to say that it reminds me of some of the artificially aged fake crap that is for sale on a market stall in Northwich.

    A good decision, I took one look at the swastika and it was a no no for me too. Leon.

    Hello,
    apart from the modern chemical ageing on this piece and for sure the misproportioned swastika the eagle looks like quite a good strike.
    The chemical that has been applied looks like flux to me. If you had it in hand a sniff would soon tell you what it was.

    I would have liked to have seen the badge before it was done as the quality and detail looks not too bad (still a reproduction but a good attempt)

    Possibly Gau Warsaw?
