    This is my first real post on this forum. Any criticism would be appreciated.

    Hello,

    Not sure why your photos won't load, they are only about 28. KB, most of mine are around 200. KB and I have no issues.
    Please do not use photo hosting, as it is not allowed here.
    Have you tried to upload them using the method described in this thread?

    Don't claim to know all the Juncker variations out there but I don't recognize this one, nor do I claim to be an authority on these.

    Photos as you note are too small and can't be expanded to get a good view. That said, the hinge and catch are not typical of J1, J2 or J3 Junckers. And the reverse of the eagle is not J1, J2 or J3 either (can't discern anything from the angled obverse photo).

    I ran this from Internet Explorer and it worked very well. I was using Firefox. Here are some higher rez photos.

    Sorry, but I don't like this badge at all. I even think I see casting lines under the wings of the eagle.

    And the maker mark looks incorrect to me as well.

    Still, not an award I'm very proficient in so other opinions correcting me are welcome.

    Here is my Juncker J2 example to compare. As noted, it's not a J1, J2 or J3

    I will add, besides the J1, J2, and J3, there are also later war Juncker J4's. These use the "68" in the makers mark.

    However, this badge is not a Junckers J4 either.

    As an fyi.......

    I have confirmed my concerns in discussions with a well known expert/author on these awards.

    Indeed it is an outright fake based on the Assmann/FLL design
