If you do a search on this forum you will find other examples posted. These ones are faked quite well. There are some good photos of an original posted here.

Compare the hardware carefully and you will know if it is original or not.
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
Yes, looks original to me. Shows typical loss of plating, wear, etc. Lots of these were made in last years of war by many makers, many unmarked, some of lower quality.
It's a good one.
