    Default Luftwaffe Beobachterabzeichen with an 'interesting' MM

    So, here is a Luftwaffe Observers badge. I have no expertise in this category of medals whatsoever. However, it has got a makers mark on it that is unusual for an Observers Badge: CE JUNCKER BERLIN SW 68. There was a thread on wehrmacht awards back in 2005 discussing such a marking on an observers badge, possibly it can help: Please post images of Luft Observer's Badge marked "C.E. Juncker Berlin SW 68" - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
    Anyhow, I'd like to have opinions on this piece. Is it really rare or just a post war piece?

    The piece above is a fake badge and therefore it has a fake makers mark. I've never seen an accepted original Juncker Beobachterabzeichen with the 'BERLIN SW68' marking.
    Juncker made two types of Beobachterabzeichen with very different styles of eagle. The badge posted above is trying to be a second pattern but fails miserably. Compare it to an original second pattern badge below.

    Unfortunately, i suspected that this would be the case. Thanks Adrian. I didn't think there was much chance of this being original.
