Default My new mint Nahkampfspange in Bronze by 'A.G.M.u.K.'

VERY happy to add this mint Nahkampfspange in Bronze by 'A.G.M.u.K.' to my collection! Just picked it up at WAF member Chrisje110 who lives just a few miles away from me.

I hope you all like this one as much as I do!

That is a very crisp, minty example. Very nice photography too. Congratulations on adding it to your collection.

A superb example that could not get any better unless it had the blue backplate.

Thank you gentlemen!

I must say that I personally like this badge better with a black backplate rather than a blue one. But I must say that I’m more of a “looks” collector than a collector of rare variants. For example when I can choose between a mint light Zimmermann DkiG or a heavily worn heavy Deschler, I would probably go for the Zimmermann.

Not that I think that I really compensated here

I can definitively not agree with you on this matter! Blue backplate are lovely!
Your clasp is wonderful, and I totally agree on the importance of the look than on the rarity. Best is of course to have a great looking rarity!!

Ok.. I did some more research and I have to admit that the blue backplates (when in good condition) look fantastic
Still, I'm going to keep this one for now. Must be a VERY good example with a blue backplate to make me upgrade and sell this one

It's beautiful! I'm with you on the fact to choose condition above rarity. Unless the rarity is also pristine condition…
