    Default Luftwaffe Badge - real or not? HELP!

    I own a Luftwaffe Combat Badge from WWII. From my research I have learned that it is a Radio Operator/Air Gunners badge, but I don't know if it is real or not. I was wondering if someone could help me determine if it is or not.

    Thanks for any help you can give me!

    They are kind of blurred because my "better" camera doesn't like small objects

    No I was not aware thank you. I do believe this is a genuine badge because I found it with a lot of picture and knick knacks of my grandparents, and they both served in the US Army during WWII and near the end of the war they were stationed in Germany.

    I think this is good one, first look was like Kriegsmetall made. But now I see it's a Buntmetal?
    Of course the better pics will say more...
