    Default Panzerkampfabzeichen in Bronze - Unmarked

    Hello to all, few days ago I posted several badges, and few of them were nice reproductions, which can confused many collectors. Now when, I learn, that there are waiting fakes on market, I want to show my Tank badge in bronze, which is in my collection. Im sure that this badge is authentic despite the fact it is unmarked. It looks like Steinhauer & Luck product or Junker? Maybe you can help me with identifying producer and also confirming its authenticity.

    Thanks a lot for your help and opinions!

    Best regards

    Hi Peter,

    This is a genuine solid zinc badge by a so far unknown maker that is referred to in collector circles as the "So called Juncker set up" due to the similarities between the 2 designs and rear hardware, but that is all.

    There were 2 die versions of this badge, the "Type A" that has only ever been found in bronze, and the more common "Type B" that can be found in both bronze and silver, although the silver badge is the somewhat more scarce of this type being out numbered by roughly 10 to 1 in known examples.

    Your badge is a "Type A", the all bronze production version, and the less common of the two die type badges. The differences between both die types is slight, but the area between the eagles body and wings, the co-ax MG port and the headlights all differ slightly from the one die type to the other.

    Your badge would benefit from a smear of Vaseline to negate the onsetting corrosion. It looks like white rust, but this can quickly change to zinc pest that will start eating into the badge, so best sort it out.

    Regards, Ned.
