    Default Need Help! Paratrooper badge

    Hello everybody!

    First want to say my best wishes for the holidays!

    Need your help. I want to make some trades and I was offered one paratrooper badge (see pics below). So, want to ask your honest opinion on this one. What do you think? Thanks in advance!

    Regards, Aleks.

    There looks a lot of detail in the feathers in the eagle which is always a good sign , and the pin looks ok to me , the catch from the picture looks ok but could be a replacement one , may be period done ? And the 2 rivets seem ok , thats just my opinion on it and im no expert but looks ok to me , i have 5 100% original fj badges .

    Personally I have some concerns, you know, view everything as fake 'til proved otherwise.

    I have not seen feet like that on a para badge? they look kinda chunky. Also the eagle appears to be mimicking the JMME badge? Open beak etc:

    Like Stewy, I would like to see the hardware a little closer. It's always a tough call where Para badges are concerned. There are some VERY good fakes around, VERY good ones
