    Hi guys,

    Here’s my new “Ball-Hinge” type Flak-Kampfabzeichen.
    When the mailman arrived I was actually surprised by how good the badge looks. Even better than in the pictures when I bought it.

    Anyway, let me know what you think Last picture is in my cabinet, next to a zinc Wiedmann (which was actually one of my first items ever).

    I think it is good and don't profess to be well versed in these but did some studying when I picked mine up a few years back.

    Overall it matches up well to my example but will say that some of details on the obverse seem to be a little soft. Bringing this up for discussion and will let those with more experience provide opinions. It could be the photos/ angle of the photo, although I will say they are excellent quality. I do believe that the die on these award wore down over time as well.

    You can see the die flaw in the first oakleaf to the right of the eagle. It is ill formed, like on mine. But also look at some of the softer details on yours such as the three rivets below the gun in between the gears and the detail of the wings as well. All softer. As noted just observations.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
