I can only agree, a decently made case fake. From the front it looks really good, but the reverse is quite crude compared to original Juncker products. Especially early Juncker badges like this one...

I can only agree with Seb, this one is a pretty easy fake because it doesn't use a design used by any original maker. Both the eagle and wreath designs are unique, so if you study what originals...

Hi Hans,

Interesting find and I agree another link to Schickle/Mayer.

Thanks

Hi guys,

This one was listed on Philipp Militarias site as an L/98, but looks more like a Hymmen L/53 to me, no?

Thanks

Very nice Juncker in great condition, atleast from the obverse. The repair sounds like its pretty minor and doesn't detract at all from the great look on this wartime beauty. thumbsup
