Panzerkampfabzeichen in Silber A.S., Original?

Article about: My father recently got this Panzerkampfabzeichen at a local auction and I was hoping I could get a 2nd opinion on whether it's original or not. Thanks

    That's what I wanted to see, you have a nice original badge.

    Regards, Ned.

    Fair enough Ned, old mate. I'll just mention what troubled me. The 9 o'clock of the reverse (Pz track) & bottom of the eagles left wing on the obverse. Stewy

    Sorry Ned, I can't (don't know how to) do that "highlighting" carry on or I would point it out. Stewy

    If you're on about the flattened feathers on the eagles RIGHT inner wing (though left as you're looking at it) and the general softness all around the area of the birds talons and the swastika, I think this may be a flaw caused by the crimping in of the hinge. Take the time to check out the R.K PAB's that used the same crimped in ball hinge, the area between the eagles inner feathers and it's body and legs suffered from the same problem and is well documented. See p.373 in P De B's book for the details.

    Regarding the area of the tracks on the reverse if I understand you correctly, I see no problems at all.

    BTW, take note of the faint "sunburst" striations on the edges of the reverse of the badge, you don't get them on fake examples.

    Regards, Ned.
