    Hi mate, that is a very poor copy, weak details, a rotten hinge, excess of metal around the swastika and flag from casting and a terrible flaw underneath the makers mark. Leon.

    Also the makers mark is huge compared to the two accepted types. This along with the excess flash around the superstructure as pointed out by Leon, are classic signs of post war production.

    Hello,
    It is a terrible fake. Here is my badge to compare it to (my example has the smaller maker mark).
