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

    To my knowledge this maker only had the thin pin. So i am very skeptical.

    It's trying to be a single rivet Osang, but I'm definitely not liking it. Most all of the single rivets I've seen are counter sunk and flush-and this one is not.

    Hi there,i do not like the look of the luft assault badge,the reverse looks very "puffy" and not a crisp cast as you would expect from this good maker.Also it looks as though it is made of a brownish base metal which is wrong but that could just be the lighting in the pictures.As already mentioned,the pin does not look right either,and that rivet is a very messy looking job,sorry but I think this is no good, Leon P.S The catch looks very much like a fake I have on an infantry assault badge!!!Click image for larger version.

    That´s also my opinion.The set-up on the starting badge,with the broad pin,was normaly not used of "Osang" for a Erdkampfabzeichen.My opinion is also going to a fake badge,but sharp pics of the obverse and reverse would be interesting to see the details better!

    Can you post pics of the para badge also?The para badge looks to be a fine Juncker!

    So much for 1st impressions! I, also, have to agree. Definitely does not look like a genuine Osang Para.
