Hi there, not the best pics but I wouldn't want it in my collection. Sorry, Stewy
It's a fake known as the "Non Touching Swaz" ( whoever thinks of these names is a true artiste) based on the S&L design but with a gap twixt swastika and turret that is not seen on any of their panzer badge designs and appeared around 10 years ago in various guises such as solid, semi hollow and as seen here hollow. The hardware set ups also vary wildly. Obviously the price of 70 Euro's is a red flag, and you did well to hold back and put it up here for discussion.
The forum has doubtless saved you a fair amount of money on steering you clear of numerous items that you have posted in the past for verification and have been proven bogus. Perhaps you might consider paying to be a gold member as a way of thanks for the help you have received since you joined last year? It would certainly be a nice gesture and is appreciated by all here who do subscribe.

@rbminis: Would be nice if someone can complete the list with pictures.
