    The box it is in looks like a 'generic' type out there today - too new.

    I don't particularly like the way the badge is marked, lack of detail
    in the ornamentation at the top where badge meets hanger,
    and the overall patination is odd.........

    My gut says 'no'.
    Regards,


    Steve.

    This one seems to be a better example..........!


    It is very strange to me, how, after looking at and seeking out TR military items
    for over 30 years, all of these 'rare' medals and badges are now appearing.
    I have never seen this 'Academy' badge before, except in books.

    Same as HJ 'Trade Show' Badges ('Kreissieger', 'Gausieger', etc.) Up until a few
    years ago I had never seen one. Now they are everywhere - in all three grades,
    and on a lot of dealers sites !

    Most fakes from the late 70's and 80's were very poorly made from lead
    or soft metal, but they are getting so good these days, I think the
    'better' awards can be faked using quality methods and materials.

    I definitely agree with you Steve, I doubt collectors suddenly wiped the cobwebs off their safes and start selling all their rare awards.

    If they do Jay, along with Veterans or their families, hopefully they would go to
    bona-fide 'experts' to get proper evaluations, and then the items purchased
    get re-sold for what they are truly worth. On the other hand, you have
    some folks selling their heirlooms in garage sales.......

    ( I think there is more fake stuff around today than geniune pieces ! )

    This too, is how modern 'catch-phrases' come into play; 'Veteran aquired',
    'out of the woodwork', etc. There seems to be a story with everything
    now, trying to make an object have more value and validity, when
    actually their origin is nebulous !
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I think that this is exactly what is going to happen.
    The first generation of this hobby was built around buying directly from the Veterans.
    I think the second generation of this hobby will be long term collectors who are passing and their families liquidating everything.
    In the next ten to fifteen years I think we are going to see more and more of these "rare" items.
