    Thanks Ez! You sure came good for me at a rough time in my life when you let me have this to make a pairing that i've never come across before, and that kindness means a lot to me.

    Thanks again mate, Ned.

    Nice pair Ned - if I can hazard a toolmakers hypothesis as to the reason behind the eagles head mark, sometimes when pieces are press cast or die struck, the part sticks in the wrong half of the die and one or more knock-out pins ( not quite the same as the ejector pin in an injection molding but does the same job ) are used to extract the piece without bending. To me, the eagles head may have been such an area ( if thin ) to get stuck and needful of a helping push?? ...... another theory maybe?
    Cheers, Dan

    Possible I suppose Dan, the type 5 is well known for the poor design of the eagles head that makes it lack detail and it appears smaller than on the other 4 types of standard PAB. Generally speaking the beak of the bird is more 'pointed' on Orth type 5's than other makers of the type and perhaps this may have some relevance to what you suggest regarding the removal of the stamping from the die.

    Regards, Ned.

    Congratulations Ned!
    A great pair of Panzerkampf Abzeichen's. So far, I do not have any Orth Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's or Panzerkampf Abzeichen's, but they are on my list.

    Hi there mate,

    The weight is between those numbers give or take a fraction, but you really do need to be sure that the badge is a good one by examining it closely in other aspects as these are heavily faked, and to a high standard, due to the rarity value. If you can get good straight on pics front and back and post them in a new thread for evaluation you will get a positive yes or no as to it's originality or not, whatever the case may be.

    Regards, Ned.

ID:	687976Of course, I examined the badge. To me, this is the original. Just by weight assured me.
    If you do not want to disclose the number, send it to me PM. Thank you. Zdenek
