Nice Heeres Flakabzeichen

Article about: NIce and rare flack artilery badge. Rare becase the maker stamp "J" and the bearer number is not on a badge itself but on the needle. In my opinion, unworn. Real or Fake?

    It's a copy of a design that most resembles that of Forster & Barth, although there are others very similar by Souval, Hobacher and Rettenmaier. The details are somewhat soft, but in my opinion the obverse would fool many. The reverse however utilises a catch that matches no combat badge I can think of, and certainly no flak badge whether Heer or Luftwaffe. The letter and numbers on the pin make no sense at all, and are often found as 'enhancements' added to fake badges in a weak ruse to add authenticity.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned.
    I was thinking where do they get those ideas about putting some fantasy manufacturer symbols/numbers etc.

    I have never seen those type of markings on any original before either.

    Hi, not a chance, the reverse is of no comparable style to known originals, in fact I think several years ago I had a fake Panzerabzeichen with the same catch on it. Leon.

    It's for sale in the classifieds now. Mind you it's on hold, so maybe the mods are onto it. Hopefully nobody has purchased this pending payment.

    I noticed the odd markings and contacted Ned about it. The seller was asked by me to post it here for scrutiny.
    I have since put it on hold.
