    Heeres Flakabzeichen are rare and fetch a premium. The majority of them I see are fakes. I can't comment on this one but tread lightly...

    250-350 usd IMO. I'm not a badge guy, but I once had one with similar hardware which was a reproduction. Not saying that the case here however, just my observation.

    Add: wow Glenn, that's crazy and something I didn't know. I got my other one, which is authentic, for 75 bucks Apologizes on the incorrect price assessment. I have these things, but in all honesty, I don't study them rear enough.

    Not mine but here is another one which seems to somewhat match yours. Found it quite fast just by searching heer flak badge.

    Heer flaks go for $600+ these days, LW flaks are generally around $350-450.

    Unfortunately the photos are too small to give a proper evaluation but from what we can see I think the catch area is consistent to those linked to above and on that basis alone I would pass on it and withdraw you $100.
    Craigslist has been mentioned many times here in the past and it is not the place to obtain genuine militaria, especially at bargain prices.

    If you can get better photos it would of course help.

    Glenn's price estimation is spot on but will vary from maker to maker. A Juncker would fetch more than a Souval for example.

    This thread reminded me to ask the purpose of these badges! Were they awarded on Heer soldiers mounting a flak position? If yes how could this happen? Flak positions were supposed to be under LW orders... Same goes for the Heer parabadge... How can an infantry soldier gain such a badge??? Please enlight me as i see these badges and i know nothing about them...

    The Army had it's own Flak units, Heeres-Flakartillerie:
