Question Hi Guys

.....Have you looked at the upper rivets as well? What you are seeing as 'overspray?' may just be reflection.

Not just the rivets. There is overspray all over that badge. Take a look at the beak.

My experience is that the gold colour dosen´t get pale. It just disappears.
I´m only regering to the JFS produced numbered badges.
The Juncker made badges have another gold colour, as we all know.

Hi Peter,


Its not a fake, but no doubt refinished. There is more overspray of the new gold finish on the eagle as well..

Until now, my attention has been focused on originality, now I pay more attention to refinished. For comparison, the image of rivets from my badge. /#6/

Peter,
be careful! He “purged” people for far less!
(And he is wrong, of course, but don’t you disagree with him!)
