    Default Panzerkampfabzeichen V Stufe "100" in horrible shape, real or fake?

    Hey guys, I am new to relic hunting. Someone is trying to sell me a Tank Assault 100 Engagement badge. I understand that these are extremely rare and valuable. He says he received it from a vet in Holland, he seems honest and has a large collection. It is in BRUTAL shape. I noticed that the 25-50-100 Engagement badges show a Panzer crushing sticks rather than grass, the back seems to have some sort of a mark. I am a rookie and have no real knowledge, please shed some light! I assume its not real but I have to check with the pros! Check it out!

    That is about as fake as you are ever likely to find. A very poor representation of what is a two piece and generally well made award.

    You will note the two pieces have been cast and moulded to give the impression but fool no-one. Everything is wrong with this badge.

    My thoughts exactly, as a rookie I cant tell if a badge is in crap shape or just a poor fake!

    Thanks for the help, I will avoid this seller haha

    For reference, here is a good numbered Panzer badge. There are minor variations between makers but you will get the general idea of what an original badge should look like compared to the aberration above!

    Lol, one of the two is a liar - if there is or was
    another party involved.

    It was bound to happen - fakes being aged
    to look like ground dug 'relics'.........!

    Agreed totally! Someone is up to no good!

    Did you guys notice the attempt at some sort of a maker mark on the back-right side?

    I think its horrible when people try to make fakes and add forgery maker marks
