    To answer your original question, by camparing your to known originals. Is there any markings on the reverse? Better photo will help. With what I currently have, I do not like the detail of the eagle. However, this could be due to the quality of your photographs which you have posted.

    I to am a little troubled by this one but may be incorrect.Better pic's of the reverse are required I feel.
    Have a look at this one,It's very similar in detail.

    I am by no means an expert, but the clasp looks different than the one in the other thread. The detail looks similar to me though.

    No sadly i didnt get any details other than he had been secretly collecting these while he served in WWII and even after that apparently...Im trying to unravel the details of some of them and possibly get them out to the people that cherish this sort of thing....its an exciting journey for me to say the least and the people ive met have been fantastic! So many people all over the world quite amazing!

    "How do you know if its real or fake? Heres wut i got..."

    How do you know? = KNOWLEDGE

    Study your chosen subject until you can differentiate between original and fake.
    Learn and study the attributes and characteristics of your collecting interest...

    Relying on others to determine originality will only cost you in the end.

    Quick question, why ask I it's real or fake if your Uncle brought it back. I have several items from family and would never question it's Authenticity. Sounds a little strange to me.

    I think it's because, as he is saying, his uncle collected AFTER the war as well. So it may not be one that he directly brought back.
