    Hi everybody,
    new collector asking your opinions about this item.
    It is for sale but seller can't verify 100% if it is good or not, he doesn't know.
    Unmarked and price is ok. So what do you think?

    Welcome to the forum,

    You're going to need better pic's to be certain, but I'm pretty sure this is an old fake pertaining to be a Juncker badge. The overall detail is soft, especially on the reverse, and the hardware looks incorrect. I would like to see a close up angled pic of the hinge as I think that will tell all, but catch, obverse and reverse shots in natural light and close up would really help.

    Here's an example of what I'm thinking the hinge MIGHT look like, a complete mess.

    The badge will also be noticeably undersized length and width.

    I'll leave it with you.

    P.S. It's silver not bronze by the look of it.

    Regards, Ned.

    Ned's right. Not one I'd want. Sorry, Stewy

    Hi Ned and thanks for welcome greetings & your strong opinion
    I'll ask the seller better close up pics to find out how the hinge looks.
    The seller said that he has owned this item for over 20 years so it can be an old fake like you said..

    I have a feeling these came out of northern Germany. Several versions but matching hardware. Stewy

    If it is the badge I'm thinking of then I believe that it was made here in the UK, but we all have our own theories....
