    Default Hermann Aurich Fake

    Watch out for this Hermann Aurich Fake. The front of this badge is identical to an original one, the maker mark is almost perfect and even the hard ware (hinge and catch) are identical to the original. The only way to spot this fake is its sloppy assembly:

    Default AWS 1942 Fake

    Another fake that you will frequently come across on shows and certain dealer sites is the fake AWS 1942 Panzer Badge. The most easy way to recognize these is to look at the catch, original examples have a 'waffle' crimp, fakes do not. I uploaded a picture of how an original catch looks like for these kind of badges:

    Another credible fake, assembly is good, but the lettering is off, and this badge was never assembled in this way. One that catches a lot out

    When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
    An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
    An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
