    No chance I'm afraid.

    This is the infamous 'claw fake' It can be found marked for several manufacturers.

    If you compare this to a genuine Assmann badge you will see notable differences. The eagle's beak and the extent to which the mouth goes halfway down it's neck is wrong. The details of the gun, the amount of rivets on the above is completely different on an Assmann badges, there were none around the base of the gun. The Assmann makers mark should also be raised, not stamped.

    The name 'claw fake' came about because of the deformed looking claw clutching the swastika, easy to spot once you know about it.
