    Definitely not a Meybauer. It's an unmarked Juncker's, as you said.

    Hi John,

    definately a tombak Juncker and a very nice one too.

    Yes,the tombak Maybauer is one of the rarest of all Hilfskreuzer awards IMO.I know of only three in collections worldwide, and i am fortunate to have one of them.
    The main feature of the tombak Meybauer is that it has cut-outs on the swastika,the only maker to do this on their HK awards,and on their very rare Minesweeper badges too.

    For the record,Juncker,Schwerin,Meybauer and Steinhauer & Luck all had seperately attached/rivetted globes to their HK awards.

    Again, a nice Juncker and a fine badge to have in one's collection despite the fact that the Juncker HK is most common of all the tombak awards but still very desirable.

    Regards,Martin.
