Unmarked Panzerkampfabzeichen

Article about: I've seen this Panzerkampfabzeichen for sale which was supposedly engraved by the original recipient. What do you guys think about it? Have you seen a fake one that has been engraved in such

    If i'm honest, I had a serious problem with the shape of the rock in the foreground, it's not a correct match to any genuine type I can think of on a PKA. Also I think I can see a small hole in the 3rd track pin down on the far right as we look at it. I seem to remember reading that it was a bad sign as far as originality goes, but can't remember for the life of me where I saw it! The nearest thing to it IMO is an unmarked Frank & Reif. Whatever, I think it's odds on you dodged a bullet, I certainly wouldn't buy it on the strength of those pic's.

    Thank you again for the consideration of this badge. I wouldn't have bought it without a 'thumbs up' from the members here, and it seems unlikely that I'd have gotten that!

    99% of what's offered for half of its value is fake, but there are a few gold flakes in the dungheap, so I hate to pass things pass by that stand a chance.

    Anyway, I appreciate the opinions offered on this one. As always, the expertise of this forum is truly invaluable.

    I wasn't comfortable with it right from the beginning but did not want to outright call it a fake without the research first.
    I have not been able to find a match yet.
