Flugzeugführerabzeichen and Beobachterabzeichen.

Article about: They were made to deceive not display to the unknowing IMO. As I said I have never seen such marked items. The numbers you see are fictitious IMO. Eric

    Default Flugzeugführerabzeichen and Beobachterabzeichen.

    I like to show a similar set Luftwaffe Medals as I assume that they are in
    the same condition as the others which are( no good )I did have show
    them before,As it is unclear why they are marked 21/22
    and the others where 24/25

    I know that they are fake but show them anyway to find out the what
    the numbering means. And assume that I am not the only one with
    fake's and may having similar numbers. They are from a collection
    which was more than 40 years locked away, and I am sure
    not recently been produced.

    Hi Dorker,i'm wondering if these fake awards were made as a cheap "set", or possibly a "museum"that was taken in by them many years ago numbered them for their inventory hence the numbering system?The top award looks to be an attempt at an Assman as the makers mark has been copied on that one.

    A good example of an Assman!! Notice the quality in manufacturing compard to your example Dorker,the original has nice neat and tidy "rivets" to the reverse,no pitting to the metal as it has not been "cast" from a mold and quality hinge. That's what your looking for in a good badge, Leon.

    I agree on this instance but we also see the forgers do a even better job on some than some originals and that will bust them as well.
    I have seen some fakes show too much detail before for some makers.

    Nice example for comparison Eric. The quality difference is very noticeable.
    ( In the mid 1970's I saw some terrible fakes made of lead )

    And yes, everyone has, or has had fakes in their collections. Below is a
    bogus one of mine - even the case is bad. The reverse is incorrectly
    marked 'C.E. Juncker, Berlin SW68':

    It is possible that they where made for a display somewhere,but what I don't understand is that the numbering is on the Ring and on the Eagle.
    As for administration purpose one number is enough I think.

    Hmm...so far, zero good-all bad. Did all of these badges come from One person or source?

    Yes they where from one person collection I did expect more from it but that is the way it is.
