    Looks good, but the mm is there? I've never seen an unmarked variant.

    I think the end of the 'K.' is just visible behind the pin.

    Hi Tom

    With these pics this one is hard to tell if original and I would not buy any badge with pics like these. That being said, I am very leery of LGAB's as they have been faked to almost perfection.

    After studying this badge, I do not think it's an R.K. example

    I think (if original) it is a M.u.k.5 example. The mm of the M.u.k.5 on original badges is weak to say the least with the Karneth examples having a very noticeable raised "R.K." The catch area is also different on the R.K. examples.

    Here is my M.u.k. to compare.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Here is an R.K. example. This badge is not mine and is a file pic from my DB.

    Thanks for the input guys.
    Fischer, you are correct, seller confirms it's marked for M.u.K.
