    This badge is a fake. It's a good one though, and caught me out the first time, but having looked further into this particular L/64 fake by Staegemeir there are several small flaws that are always found. The faker here has tried to hide some of these by the expedient of attempting to add bogus corrosion to the areas that show these flaws. However, the 'blob' on the reverse of the eagle (see below) is one that still remains, and that alone condemns this badge as being a Staegemeir fake.

    And the same on another Staegemeir example.

    Sorry to have to agree with Ned, but he is spot on. I have also never seen an original of this type of award with anywhere near that amount of finish left on it, it nearly always has been completely absorbed into the zinc by time.
    Here is my Assmann L/64 to compare with. Leon.Click image for larger version.

    Never be sorry Leon, it's always great to be on the winning side.

    Nice to see an original badge as well.
