    Sure is, but could you extrapolate on the reasons why in a bit more detail please? This is not the WAF.

    The lack of overall detail,what appears to be a circle behind the swaz, poor finish, no content mark on the back and the sig is not sharp with more strange flaws around it.

    Absolutely pure rubbish...Look at the sloppy sword hilts, the soft edged leaves, the shallow swastika....just Bad...

    Hi, a very poor copy as Chrisk and the others have said, the shape of the stalheim also looks more like a hippies floppy hat than a piece of steel. Leon.

    What is wrong with this badge has been explained above, but do allow me one additional, very basic observation:

    All three grades of the 20 July 1944 Wound Badge were made of silver. The helmet/swords, the laurel wreath and the reverse side were finished differently for the three grades (respectively blackened, patinized with blackened details or gilt). The central pebbled background field inside the wreath was silver for all three grades.

    So, if you see a picture of a 20 July 1944 Wound Badge in an overall solid color - which is the case here as it is with a very high percentage of fakes of this badge - you don't even have to check for any other details, flaws, markings etc.
