    Hi madskot, welcome to WRF.

    I like what I see, for me an original badge, but you need to wait until Martin W, Norm F, Jody or some of the other guys who are big KM collectors to take a look.

    Hello and welcome to the forum!
    The hardware is correct for this maker and I am able to see the expected circle mark on the reverse. The maker's mark also looks to be correct. I believe this is a good one but as Ned has stated, best wait for Martin, Norm or Jody as they are more familiar with Kriegs awards.

    Hi, welcome to the forum. That is a good FO award in zinc, correct hardware and showing the ejector mark to the reverse. Leon.

    Nothing more to add-a good Friedrich Orth badge. The zinc is eating the gilding and will finish the job fairly soon, but for that, it's fine.
