    Please figure out how to orient your photos properly before posting.
    It is not fair to the members you are asking for help to have to look at them sideways and figure out if they are good or not. Sometimes even when they are posted the right way it is still difficult to tell the originals from the copies.

    Unfortunately this is a rather poor fake.

    Thanks Ralph. Unfortunately, I cannot rotate the images; however, if you click on the individual pictures they appear correctly. When I uploaded the images onto the forum they appeared sideways for some reason.

    Thanks Ned for your feedback. How can you tell it's a reproduction? Is there a design flaw? I am always interested in learning.

    Unfortunately, when I click on the images, they appear just like they do in your post.
    I will correct them later when I get home. Please try to figure out why they are appearing sideways.

    Well, the most obvious one look giveaway is the huge 'balled' knuckles above the talons(for want of a better description!), and the overall lack of fine detail, the original parts were identical to Juncker's, as used on their J2 badges and were highly detailed. On the reverse side the hinge is wrong compared to originals and overall there are several other red flags.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks guys for the feedback. I thought it was reproduction as well. I just needed to be sure. Don't worry I did't buy this item.
