    This badge is a cast fake, the obverse design is wrong and so is the rear set up. For the record, F&R didn't produce buntmetal badges, only zinc.

    Agreed-a cast fake. The back shows the obvious casting porosity and flaws and the obverse is not much better-look at the grass. Sorry....

    Talking of the grass, the 3 clumps of trident shaped grass stalks on the upper right of the foreground show that this badge has been copied from an original unknown maker that's called the 'Oval Crimped Design'.

    I have to say that the comments made on this was ...slice, dice, splice..and tie it neatly to get it ready for the bin. Precise and to the point answers

    Hi Guys

    I agree this one is a cast fake and as Ned states, the obverse design does not match F&R solid Panzerkampf Abzeichen's.

    Here is my example to compare.

    Best Regards, fischer

    I would send it back for a refund, these badges are starting to get to be far too expensive to be getting caught with a bad one....
