    Default Panzertruppenabzeichen der Legion Condor, Opinions please

    Hello guys, I would like to show you this Condor Legion Tank Badge, I know that these can be difficult to authenticate due to the number of manufactures in multiple countries and can range in quality. My concern with this badge is the pin and also the finnish that has been applied to this badge.
    Thanks, Glen.

    I can't say I know anything about these but from the quick research I've just done, all accepted originals I saw had a needle pin. None had this broad type pin or reverse set up.

    The other thing that's not looking good is the ends of the oak branches at the bottom of the wreath, these have just had a couple of 'that'll do' round holes recessed in there. Originals had a much better finished branch end.

    There were also multiple differences between the tanks.

    The above was just based on a few quick comparisons so if anyone can correct what I say then I welcome the chance to learn a bit more about these badges.

    Hello Adrian, I had a quick look on the WAF and I read a few threads and one claimed that they did make them with the wide pin, I will try and find the thread and post a link.
    Thanks, Glen.

    I looked on GCA and found none with the wide pin but genuinely can't call it either way as I don't know enough about these. My post above is just my observations.
    Did S&L make these awards? The wide pin does remind me of one from this maker.

    If you can find a pic of an accepted original wide pin badge, please post it.


    @ the other Glenn, is that mini yours? I like the look of that one.

    Hello, at the bottom of the page there are four examples. The second on the left is a similar example to this one regarding the pin and catch set up but the detail looks different.

    Yes, the obverse details are very different.
