All are fake IMO Anton. The badges are crudely cast and very poor in execution with numerous pitting markes on the reverse and soft details.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Have to agree the detail and quality just are not there.
I believe they are fake as well.
I see, as I expected. What about that "79" stamp on the LW award? Is it a fantasy stamp? The award itself 100% fake?
The M.M. 79 is one of less than a handful 'Unknown makers' that appear to have existed, that's pretty handy when you think about it regarding this badge in particular, isn't it?

All are bad. Hardware on PKA is complete fantasy. Stewy
