Is this one genuine?
Hi guys, I was offered this Panzerkampfabzeichen, it is a dug-up one, it looks genuine to me, it has a good oxidation and well made details. Anyway before buying it, I'd like to listen to the opinion of some experts of this badge. I was asked 80 euros, is it a good price in your opinion? Thanks in advance for answering.

Looks like a correct solid form AS Triangle badge with the correct ball hinge . Wait for additional opinions.
Unless you are specifically collecting ground dug items I would either offer less or wait/save for an "un weathered one".
Thank you very much for your answer, I love dug-up relics and not dug-up items of this kind are around 150-200 euros, and I can't afford it right now. Anyway I was thinking to offer less as well since it is quite expensive for its condition, if it had been a perfect dug up one, I would have got it for that money. How much could I offer him, could give an advise ? Thanks.
Anyway I'd like to listen to additional opinions before dealing.

Panzerkamf in Bronze - recent finds from Kurland Kessel! - Militaria Collectibles buy - sell at War Relics
He has them for US$75 including fees and postage - a good price I think ( I have bought one )

Good advice Dan,
This AS in Triangle 'Die type 3' is also only worth that kind of money too, nowhere near the 150-200 Euro's suggested by US. Plus there is the advantage that the vendor you mention is respected member with a solid reputation for fair play. That's the way to go!
