Looks original to me. Is there an L/21 stamp on the main pin?

Hi Maciej,

My gut tells me it may be no good. It's possible it's a TR period Zimmermann (I think that's who I've seen this type attributed to, they have a distinctive main pin) but the core...

I agree, a lovely example and definitely a Juncker from the markings and characteristic catch (obverse design aside!).

I have that sort of catch reinforcement (jeweller modification) on a couple of Imperial EK1s. I don't recall seeing it on 1939 pieces, let alone a 57er! Great personalised example and thanks for...

Unknown as far as I know however, the hinge/catch indicate TR period (probably 1940s) production to me.

Hi Stephen,

The badge looks original. If the badge is steel, the Gold grade is probably correct.

I agree with Hans. Although L/14s are faked and the hardware/marking combinations can be confusing, these 2 appear original.

The badge is genuine. The finish on 92s generally have this fine "sandpaper" texture. On many other badges, that would be a bad sign, but on these it is a good sign.

And something currently on eBay marked L/13 that also appears to share the same core, although the details are not as sharp (possibly due to thicker paint?);

Hi,

The badge looks original/wartime compatible but I agree that it looks like someone has sloppily painted gold on the wreath. I'm guessing it would come off fairly easily with acetone and the...

Both nice original examples.

I'm wondering if the maker's mark may have been ground off the 1st one (not unknown to obliterate Juncker markings on these, possibly by period re-sellers) and the...

I agree that this appears to be a crude repro (casting) of the Assmann type. The obverse detail is simply not there.

Based on the finish and reverse hardware (even if the main pin is replaced the hinge, catch and tophook are incorrect and do not look repaired), I'd suggest this is an out-and-out repro.
