Sorry, I can't help you with the award right now but we do not do free appraisals.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
I'm sorry, but I do not understand what you're telling me here..?
He is saying that he can't say if the badge is good or bad at the moment and that at warrelics, we do not say what something "should" cost.
I see! Thank you for the clarification! I was not aware that an estimate of value was not discussed on the forums... Sorry about that!
The answer to your other question Hoggorm is IMO that is a nice original J1 CE Juncker Pilots badge that is in extremely good condition.
I thought I had a couple of concerns, the rivets are both domed and on a J1 I would have expected them to have a flattened top but that rivet with the small nipple on top is a type I have seen before on the early J1s and the wing on the left looking from the reverse looks to have something peculiar going on with it unless it is just the photographs.
There has been an overzealous hand finishing on the claw at the side of the swastika and it has completely gone...perhaps the reason for it being in such good condition.
Do you have a box for it?
The answer to your other question: Now you know which badge you have you should be able to find a market value on the net

J1 is the generally accepted type amongst collectors.
The juncker pilot badge has from my memory 3 accepted types. ... A J1 J2 and a J3.
The one you have is a J1 which means it was more than likely the first model. Yours is made in buntmetal which was the same die that was used to make the aluminium badge
Thank you for the additional pictures it must be the lighting on the first pictures that made the wings look like they were two piece
Look at the badge and look at left foot and you will see the left hand claw is missing.
This was an area that the hand finishing left with a fine piece of metal but it looks is as though an over zealous cut has removed it completely.
I just thought that it may not have passed quality control and was never awarded hence the good condition of the badge.
I'd appreciate seeing some pictures of the box...just the lid top and inner will do

Hi, looks like a very nice award to me as well, superbly made as you would expect from Juncker's. Leon.
