    Hey there, this is my first post here on the board. Great site by the way.

    Anyway, im looking into buying a luftwaffe paratrooper badge. Its in pretty good condition, worn in the right way i suppose. Marked "bsw" and looks good when stacked up to other good examples. The only thing is the eagle wiggles a little. The rivets look good but there is a little give. The guy selling claims that early model paratrooper badges commonly have this feature. Is this true or is the guy BSing me? He also claims to have a full cash back deal on anything he sells. So should i buy it or not???

    sorry no pictures, but thanks for any advise.

    Pretty much all of the paratroop badge makers have been copied. If you are not 100% confident, please get photos and post them here.

    They can come a little loose.

    But please post pics here before you buy.

    Welcome to the forum too!

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here are the pics, so please let me know if its real or not? Also if you all could, make some notes to tell why its fake or real. Also to add a little info, the one rivet on the left is a little screwy. Its pushed into the back of the ring like it was made of lead or something close. That was my first thought, however, I tried bending it and the bastard wont budge. It feels very solid like a die struck.

    So please have at it, and let me know.

    Hi Jesshaedrich


    IMO not an original badge, hinge and catch are wrong for a BSW. This type can be found in our WRF fake galleries...
