    IMO it's a good but rather worn Erdkampfabzeichen, specifically an unmarked Gustav Brehmer (G.B.) badge. The variant hardware, and eagle appear to be correct for one of these, as do the cut outs and the two piece construction where the solid eagle is soldered onto the badge rather than rivetted.

    I like it.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi, a period piece but as Ned says, not in the best of condition, at the right price it is ok. Here is another GB made piece(with a slightly bigger catch plate) to compare it with . Leon.

    Hello,
    It is a good badge, but not the type of condition I like to collect.

    Many thanks, Ned, Leon, Jody, for participation in the discussion. The useful background information you provided very influenced my buying decision.

    Best regards,
