    Default Panzerkampfabzeichen authentic or not?

    Dear All,

    Would be great if you can help me to verify the authenticity of this one (claimed to be found in Russia).

    Thanks a lot!

    Cheers,

    E.

    Could be an S&L "zinker" but then again it could be anything.

    The pictures are appalling if you don't mind me saying,
    If you want a proper opinion on this badge, then you will need to supply some better photographs I'm afraid.

    It's like standing on a motorway sticking a blindfold on, and then guessing the colours of the cars that pass you by

    About all that I can make out from the photos is that it is likely made of zinc. The makers mark(if there is any), the reverse hardware, the design details, etc -all which are critical to authenticating are impossible to make out.

    I agree the pics are quite bad but the reverse set up, especially the elongated catch plate is reminding me of a Juncker.

    It also appears looking at the reverse to have been welded.......Whatever it is, it's never going to be worth anything. Sorry.

    Thanks for the replies! I will try to get some better pictures. My guess is that what appears to be welding is just zinc corrosion.

    If we're gonna all have a guess i'll follow JB with a S&L type 1.4.3. solid zinc 'Classic Set Up'. If you do decide to purchase it Evgeni, don't pay a lot as i'm pretty sure this will turn out to have little or no collector value when the better pic's come through.

    Regards, Ned.

    I pretty much agree with Ned.
