    I got this at an auction and assumed a silver badge, but on the back there are remnants of gold. Am I correct to believe this to be a gold wound badge?

    Looks a lot like my gold one, the gold plating comes away, leaving that dull silver patina....it's a gold one!!!

    Actually my silver one has a gold patina and my gold one is like the one in your photo!!!!

    Looks like gold remnants on a zinc badge to me. Sometimes the
    only finish left is a 'gold' coloured pin.........

    Did Juncker make these badges and mark them as such?

    It says "L12" on the back......is that a Juncker?

    IMO its not a Juncker badge and that stamp with the heavy 'L' is post war

    Thanks Nick. So what is it? Is the badge legit but the L12 stamped on it later?

    My thoughts exactly. An original badge post war marked IMO.

    Seems like an odd thing to do ? On closer inspection,
    the 'L/12' mark is crooked as well.........

    That is a curious thing....surely there wouldn't be any great profit made by marking an unmarked badge??
