    Matt,
    Welcome to the forum and for posting your badge. I'm personally not keen on it. The hinge is unlike anything I've seen on a badge from this maker and the details look very soft - or maybe it's the photo? Hopefully some of the others will add their thoughts too.

    Hi Matt, a big welcome to the forum. I agree with Adrian and Cobra. Should have sharper cuts on leaves in the wreath, missing detail in the bridge, and poorly cut claws on the eagle. Doesn't look original to me. Cudos on using the German vocabulary, you will make the moderators very, very happy.

    Take care,
    Jay

    Strange, I replied to this one the other day, but the post seems to have gone astray?
    What I said was, it's a reproduction, as the back gives it away. Here is one from my collection to compare

    Sorry John, I know you replied to the thread started in the uniforms forum about the same badge but posted by a different member here
    There was another thread here started by Matt but he posted twice, one with German terminology, one without. I deleted the duplicate thread.
