Default Fake A-H Austro-Hungarian Imperial Pilot Aviation Badges

I’ve decided to put up this thread as I was amazed of the fact that some of these badges are easily selling over 400$ (auction style sales), very few of them went for less than 300$. All of these are from recent eBay sales! Apparently the subject is a complete nightmare for the average collector.
I’ll keep on updating it as I see new stuff popping up!

Perhaps, being myself well in my 60s, I became quite cynical, but in this thread I see so many perfectly identifiable copies/fakes, that I now think that if someone buys them, he well deserves that.

I´m really trying to figure out the real ones - but I´m totally lost and confused by the different styles, makers and alterations possible.
This thread is a nice guideline to avoid the more blatant fakes - thank you for your effords!

Of cause I´ve been through that one, as well as through almost all others (even in other forums) concerning this topic...
But up to now I don´t own an example - still not brave enough for a purchase.
Maybe later ...
