Little help - Luftwaffe Erdkampfabzeichen.

Article about: I have to say that I just can't accept this one either. The proportions of the designs are simply not matching the narrow pinned example. Because the pin is different shouldn't mean the rest

    I have to say that I just can't accept this one either. The proportions of the designs are simply not matching the narrow pinned example. Because the pin is different shouldn't mean the rest of the badge should not be the same as others made by Osang. The thickness of the lightning bolt and the size of it's arrow head are markedly different and the ribbon on the wreath look dissimilar. The eagle, as has already been pointed out, I also agree has several very noticeable differences in the wing feathering and the talons. I'm sorry, but this badge would not be for my collection...

    I have seen a total of 4 of the earlier tombak Osang Luftwaffe GABs.

    The 4 Tombak versions I came across were the Junker manufacture.
    Which were they?

    Either way, the wide pin badge you show is a fake piece.

    I agree with the above badge being a fake...the rivets should be flush with the badge, and the lightning bolts have an odd curve that stands out immediately to my eyes when compared with the original...
    cheers, Glenn
