    I have only see a hinge plate like that in my reference material for two makers. Wilhelm Deumer and Hymmen & Co. But neither of them have the catch as this one has. The obverse is different as well.

    I'm still learning these awards, so best wait for other.

    It looks like a Wilhelm Deumer to me.
    The trimming looks a little poorly executed though and I can't seem to make out the Daisy on the reverse.
    Here is my silver example to compare.

    This is a fake based on the hollow zinc Deumer PAB. Note the strange no necked eagles head. It's a fairly common fake that seems to use the head found on the Vienna design Heer Flak badges. The missing daisy as mentioned by Ralph is also another problem. This badge is also shown in another thread here with crappier pictures, causing me to say it's original, which it clearly is not! Gwar, I chastise thee for trying to pull a fast one, ye varlet!
