    Default Panzerkampfabzeichen in silber, Dr. Franke & Co.

    Hello gentlemen,

    Please have a look at my latest acquisition. The seller assured that it is an original from Dr. Franke & Co. The covering is almost in excellent condition, it made me suspicious.
    Thanks for your opinions.

    Hi Alex,

    That's a lovely hollow zinc FCL with lot of it's original bright silver plated finish left. They also came in a matt finish like mine below and also a subdued silver finish that looks like it's been absorbed into the zinc, but it hasn't, it's been deliberately toned with a grey wash to make it less reflective on the battlefield. These are very desirable badges with their unusual looking art deco design eagles head and incised grass foreground that's unique to this small manufacturer.

    All you need to do now is pick up it's rarer still bronze twin and you have the set of hollow badges by this maker. I am lucky to have both, but then you need the silver and bronze solid zinc versions, and they are almost impossible to find these days being amongst the very rarest PAB's out there and so far but a dream for me....

    Thanks, Ned, for detailed explanation.
    I just desired to get silber PKA in mint condition for my collection. It's a pure accident I bought FCL badge.
