    Hi Ade,

    An interesting badge. Clearly it's a zinc Juncker, but that short barrel hinge is a type I've not seen on their Heer Flak badges before, although it is compatible with the Luft types and APB's if not other awards and badges by this maker. It's a solid catch repair for sure! Riveted beats soldered all day long!

    Regards, Ned.
