    Dont get a good feeling on this one pin hinge looks wrong to me and lack of detail.

    yeh, the pin has been replaced at some stage in its life, looking at it the deatails are very crisp, especialy around the eagles head, which doesnt show up well in the pics

    the detail on the eagles head and wings is exquisite, very defined, i know my camera diesnt show it clearly. [I]f its a repro, 40 bucks is still ok....the mounting for the clasps looks like it has been re done at some stage though so if it was an original that was broken post war it seems to make sense

    My concern is the catch, which I realise you said is replaced. However, is just the hook of the catch itself just replaced? Reason being, the base plate to the catch appears to be the post war Rudolf Souval design.

    Cheers, Ade.

    yeh i beleive from what i can see the catch has been replaced as well, but that is in my opinion, how does the badge itself appear?

    Hello,

    I thought you bought a luft. flak.
    The pictures are bad, straight photo from the observe, reverse would be good, but I am 100% sure that this is a poor made fake badge. Just look at that sloppy hinge, and the whole set up.

    There is one original variant with this eagle head and without mm exists, the "wienna design". Here is a picture from it to compare:
