I am no expert but to me it looks like a repro.
Firstly I don't like the dots on the helmet It could be the bad photography but it looks to strange.
The reverse pin does not look right to me and the main problem I have is the fact an authentic early variation of the gold reich wb would be rare with a large price tag that would be sold very quick if authentic.
As I said im no expert but this is my opinion on it's issues, if I was you I would pass on it.
Im looking for an a case to an 1936 olympics medal and a case to entry to austria medal. pm me If you have any spare.
Well anyway thanks for info ...i have to wait what other members think about this medal..
I'd walk away from this!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
It's a repro badge known as the 1936 'Type 1' with a variant hinge and catch. Morigi's 'Regalia Specialist' website do a version with a round wire catch and pin for under £16.00.
