    Hi again,

    I have tried to find out the maker of this unmarked Panzerkampfabzeichen by comparing the back setup, but I cannot find any match. Iím not sure if it original or not either, but I actually like the quality.

    Can someone help me out?

    Thanks
    Jonas

    I believe this setup makes it a Steinhauer & Luck. Hopefully one of the others can confirm.

    Hi Jonas, Adrian is correct. An original S&L made badge.

    These are later war badges when they started to crimp the hinge in place in order to speed up production and lessen costs. The pin itself here is an earlier style and these were used until stocks ran out. The later versions used a pin with a horizontal hinge.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Here's my S&L Panzerkriegsabzeichen. As you can see, a different catch and the hinge isn't crimped into the surface of the badge but it is the same type of hinge. Someone has also made a vague attempt at de-nazification.

    Indeed an S&L silver. One of the best PKA makers IMO. Here's another variant,you can see where the old hinge guides are.
