    Heres my Luft GAB by Osang. The first thing that bothered me was the location of the Hinge. Notice that it is located below the wreath, nearly all Osang badges have the hinge mounted at the very top of the badge. So I decided to do a comparison in which I found many differences.

    Mine is on the Left in the comparison photo. Does this make mine an obvious reproduction or were there variations?

    The guys on WAF have given it a thumbs down. It's such well made and detailed badge too. I'm having a hard time finding another badge like this one. Surely this has been identified before?

    I would agree with those who identified it as a fake. There are several differences between this badge and known, original Osang produced pieces. From the front it looks acceptable at first glance but looking in comparison shows several discrepancies. The reverse is a good attempt but again, there are differences. The makers mark too.

    I never noticed the size of 'her' hands or feet.
