    Which one Harry? I can see at least two, and there may be another but the pic's of the catch aren't good enough.

    Use your book, check the pin. Also the hinge. It's been sawn to accommodate the replacement pin, which appears to be from a bronze badge, (the same one as the ZINC swastika i'm betting). The damaged rear of the eagles head may have been caused by the sawing, or deliberately bent over to help accomplish this repair. The value is obviously compromised by this, I hope you didn't pay much for this piece.

    It's things like this Grasshopper, that the book don't tell ya....Use your eyes, think, learn.

    Ned, do you think someone wrecked a genuine bronze award to "repair" this one or those additions are from a fake/copy award. I only ask as the swastika does look like it has one wonky arm? Leon.

    Hey Leon,

    Who knows? The bent swastika arm has clearly took a heavy smack in the gap between it and the next arm clockwise by a tool like a chisel or screwdriver imo. It may be off a scrap original badge, or a fake, but it's a bit too much of an ask to go speculating, and doesn't matter anyway really, it is what it is.

    One thing for sure is that someone, somewhere, spoiled an original badge of the earliest Panzerkampfabzeichen made, that had probably been de-nazified by the original recipient as per post war regulations, so that he could continue to proudly wear it during ceremonial/remembrance events or whatever. The badge is easily one of, if not the, most desirable badges of this type, it's iconic. Unfortunately the person who did this probably thinking it would increase it's value to collectors has in fact nearly killed it. A replaced catch, pin or no pin at all is acceptable, albeit reducing the value considerably, but it has to be thought of as a 'period repaired' piece or it's really not going to find many fans.

    Regards, Ned.
