    Default Luftwaffe Flugzeugführerabzeichen. Maker? Fake?

    Hi!

    I'm quite a newbie in this subject so I need your help. I've just received this Luftwaffe pilot's badge which I ordered from what I believe a trustworthy and experienced internet store that sells militaria. The site stated it was authentic and I can't find anything that looks fake on it (I've tried to compare it on lots of pictures of both fake and authentic ones here on the internet). It lacks any makers mark on it.
    I just want to have it confirmed that it is authentic. And if it is, is someone able to tell me who the maker is?

    Hi Bjorn,
    I agree with the guys above, this badge is a fake. I can't make up my mind which maker it is trying to be as the obverse details are not like any original I know of. The hinge could be an attempt at a Juncker copy. This type of fake has been seen before, not sure where it comes from though.
    I hope you can get your money back and please post before you purchase!
