    Default Panzerkampfabzeichen in bronze by wurster:real or fake?

    This is another I am considering. Mine looks very similar to the one mentioned by Rory. From the limited reading I've done here, I was wondering if the solid backs
    are mostly late war? How would you define late war-I'd guess 44-45 but wondering if it is more officially defined in collecting?\
    I note a shiny area near hinge--is that normal?
    Thanks for any and all opinions

    Any opinions on this badge? The shiny area near hinge was my initial concern and it is the most expensive of the ones I am looking at.
    Appreciate your thoughts............

    hello simon
    comparing it to the one ill be getting it looks the same, tho clearer face on pictures in day light would be easier to compare.

    also i think maybe the hinge has been repaired at some stage soldered maybe? hope this helps

    Rory, thanks for the tip. With your help and posts on another thread to get the photos turned, I believe these should be better pictures. I like this badge for the quality, but unsure about the hinge repair (original?). I would also like to get one in silver but that will have to wait.

    Rory, any guesses when this badge was likely made? From my very limited knowledge, the hollow-backs are earlier so this must be late war?

    If you want to know as much as possible about Panzerkampfabzeichens, then Philippe De Bocks double volumn Collectors Guide to The German Panzer Assault Badge is a must. A bit on the expensive side, but a very good investment.
    Trust me, I have been expensively caught.
    You can purchase through Militaria Berlin.
    Good luck.
