Very bad Ground Assault badge. Double strike?
The characters are not mine. Suggested to buy
they are a pilots badge,glider pilots badge 1st type,and ground assault badge.
They all fake?
The pilots badge is marked SW68, found on the last type of these badges that Juncker produced, The eagle is not a Junker design, note the weird balled feet.
The Glider pilots badge is not based on any design I know of, the strange cut out hinge plate is not seen on genuine badges of this type.
The Erdkampfabzeichen marked L/60 (which was never used on these by Brehmer) should only have one central rivet (and one eagle), this has three. No good.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
