I'm no expert - but it looks AWFUL.........!
thank you for your quick reply.
What do you mean with "looks" awful?
The quality? The colors? The photos?
Lack of quality - poor construction, off colour.
May I ask what the selling price is.........?
There is no selling price.
I just wanted to know more about this one.
Itīs so different from the others around here because of the golden "color" of the tank.
As Steve said it looks terrible, very poor attempt at a 50 Panzerkampfabzeichen
thanks for your reply as well.
It was still in that small case for a part for a fokker airplane. So i think, it has been in there for a long long time and should be no fake. (?)
So i am interested in some more infos.
Does someone have the "correct weights" for the 50 Kampfabzeichen?
Has anyone seen a 50 Kampfabzeichen like this before? And maybe a link to that kind?
Thanks a lot to you both again and best regards,
The rivets are cast in for starters ( not actual rivets ) and it is so "blobby" and poor in detail I don't know where else to start
The SOW stamp is apt because it's a PIG of a badge ........sorry.
Ned's rolling his eyes in his sleep about now!

Tsk - Here's a couple for comparison if you still believe
the one you posted is genuine:
A Silver Grade Tank Badge "50" | eMedals
Tank Badge Grade II
You should look these badges up on this forum. This example is not even close to real. Plus there are different makers of these awards so weights would vary from maker to maker. If you feel a badge like this has a chance of being real you might want to look into another hobby. I am sorry but nothing about this badge is close to an original piece. For the record that is not even a legitimate maker mark. It does not matter where you obtained it, the piece is junk-sorry. It is a very poor quality replica.
I am actually going to use these pictures on another forum in which there is a worst replica contest-it is that bad.
