    Try taking the pictures with a total white background, these photos are not great. The repair on the back looks very resent, because it dose not match the other metal with the age.
    I would find another if i were you.

    I'm going to stick my neck out and say this is an original badge. Compared to my unmarked Juncker it looks very favourable. There are many features that match. It obviously has a newish repair on the back which can't be seen from the front fortunately and I've never seen one with a vertical catch plate but I like it.
    Here is mine, note also it has a crack across the gun barrel.

    Thanks A great reference, very helpful. Makes me feel much better about this on. So he marked some, while others are unmarked?

    I understand where you are coming from Adrian, but the one youth collector has shown just dose not have the detail of a Juncker made badge. I know it has the crack on the barrel but it is missing several rivets on the right hand side of the gun mount and also on the left side wing there are feathers that are not cast well.

    I hear what you're saying Morris and agree with you on the points you've made but I'm wondering if the wear to the badge, the slightly fuzzy details and poor light in which the photo was taken might be masking some of what you say.

    There is a die flaw on my badge and also on CS' badge which I've highlighted on mine that I strongly believe favours the badge being an original. That and the very very closely matched other details make me believe it's a good piece.

    yes i can see what you mean now, now that this has been established i would be happy with you judgement on the badge. A badge that has seen a fair amount of action after the war.
