    This one is being sold by Wittman............... The guy that believes the Olympic HJ daggers are real............make your own mind up......................

    An extremely choice example of a very scarce badge here. This is easily one of the nicest badges of this type I've ever offered.

    Excellent Plus. $3,495.00

    Where to start? This badge is not even close to being original. Eagle design, especially the head, wrong. Tank: Tracks, track pins, return rollers all weak and not the same as any original. Number box; wrong number font, not even close.

    Reverse: Wrong pin shape, weird pin bend tool mark that’s not found on originals, bad rivets, wrong catch and recessed base, it’s all a total mess.

    Regards, Ned.

    The final nail in the coffin on this PAB 50.
    Thank you" big ned" for your much valued opinion.
    Appears there are many faults with this badge as commented on by you. Turns out not be a really good fake. I see that the vendor has since pulled it form his web site. Hopefully he is doing the right thing with it.

    Well this separates the Men (our friend BigNed) from the boys (me). LoL

    I say...not a "half bad" fake...but sounds like it is a terrible fake.

    Thanks Friend and nice to see you around!

    Map I agree with you. I have been collecting in this area for only a short period of time. The knowledge from members like (Big Ned) help to level the playing field when purchasing badges and medals from the TR.



    "half bad fake" or "terrible fake" you still got it right though Map, Badge is a Fake!

    John There now are numbered PAB's that have the bubbled finish. The fakers have figured it out thus making these badges ever harder to buy correctly.
