    Thoughts?

    The swastika looks a bit different with one of the arms being shorter and wider.

    There are strange wear lines across the swastika and eagle.

    Being a coin dealer by trade these lines are familiar to me as I see them on coins often. They are impurities in the medal... they tend to leave striations such as these.

    I see what you mean, so the metal was full of impurities. well im still not 100% on this one, there are others with "swastika"variants so its hard to call. What would your opinion be?

    To my eyes you one looks closest to the right swastika

    Knowing where it came from I'm pretty confident it's ok... but I have been fooled in the past...

    I think it is a good FLL or unknown maker, not sure if these are officially recognized as FLL now. Typical hardware, swaz stripinglook like aging to me and there is no sign of a swaz being renazified to the bird, the aging on the back of the swaz flows from bird to swaz with no interruption.

    Original FLL for me too. I see no problems with it. Typical late war zinc badge from this maker with the correct hardware.
