    You need far better pic's than this, you know the score. As for the badge, well from the extremely limited view available my first instinct is that this is a decades old fake based on the RS Panzerkampf Abzeichen. We need close up shots of the hinge and catch, and a good close up of the eagle, specifically the lower wing area.

    TBH, at 75, this guy knows it's bad, that price is a joke. "Very nice deal..." No. There's no free meals in this game.

    I would like to hear your opinions about him as this may be the first site i found when i started searching online for WW2 items! I've only acquired a gold Mother's Cross and a Westwall medal from him so i don't know his reputation...

    The first Panzerkampf Abzeichen he shows as "Early stamped cut out base panzer 155" is the infamous 'Blob' fake based on the B.H. Mayer type 4.1.1., and I can also see another definite copy of the Aurich type 1.8.1., and that's without being able to look at the reverse side of any of them, which is always the killer.

    Furthermore, check out his wound badges, I reckon that most of those are bad, many being Morigi fake 'Legion Condor' types. There's probably loads more crap on there, but I honestly can't be bothered wasting my time looking, and that's what my advice to you would be unless you want to end up getting burned.

    ....And burned you will be!
    This establishment is run by one Paul Waterworth, purveyor of fine crap. Do a forum search.

    You've only gotta look at the ad for the badge that kicked this thread off, a steal at 75 and he has the gall to state that there is a total of 6 of them for sale!

    The "Waterworth Hoard"??

    I honestly wonder what Lizardking was thinking besides "I think it is a very nice deal..."
