Anybody care to weigh in on this BWB? Thanks, Bob
The catch is a little higher than some, Although some makers did affix it this way... There is also lack of definition on the sword ( Left ) .. The pin seems to worn into the badge too. That's all I can add..
I'd rather be A "RaD Man than a Mad Man "
Odd one...the hinge is wider than usual as well...and there's a flaw in the dot-pattern...Gwar's helpful input has me questioning the authenticity of this badge as well...too dubious, you'll find another one that's less questionable out there, friend...Out of caution, I recommend passing on this one...
Missing rear rivet on the helmet as well.
I would agree with Glenn, pass on this one.

Alright! Thank you gentlemen. I did notice the poor definition of the sword and the cross guard too. Always appreciative, Bob
Trying to decipher the name on the packet could go a long way in helping I.D. this badge, or maybe not! However, whatever the makers name is from what I think I can see, it doesn't ring any bells with me for any of the Vienna makers I'm familiar with, but looks O.K. I think. But I'm not a wound badge collector per se.

Just adding to the consensus really!
"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing he cares more about than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature with no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
The bag is marked for "Argentor Werke" Rust & Hetzel, Vienna.
