    Hi Steve,

    It looks fairly conclusive I think, but I'm looking around for info on these particular fakes but am finding it difficult to dig up any more info at the moment. The Staegemeir catalogue pic's aren't the best, but there are certainly the same flaws that indicate all were cast from the same master badge. Note also the rough obverse on the silver badge, it seems to all be adding up.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hello Steve,
    Although this example is a silver grade, this is the type and quality of finish and texture I would expect to fiind on a PAB made by Weidmann.

    An update on this badge via WAF gives it the old heave-ho.

    So that's that one put to bed.
