It is always an eye-opener to see any maker's GAB with most or all of it's finish intact. Needless to say all were quite nice. I have to admit I thought my R.K. and Juncker were my 'choice' pieces until I saw Joseph D'Errico's former GWL. The coloring of the wreath, the hand-filed swasi and the silvered cloud made this piece really shine.

Default Ground Assaults ...

I have an RK and MuK ... and it's hard to say. The RK is in much nicer condition but the MuK has "character".

Default Juncker has my vote

The unmarked Juncker badge has my vote, followed by the MUK, RK and GWL pack, followed by the rest of the gang.

beware of the new MuK fake ...uses the same eagle as the good RK fake on the market

Hi Mike,
Nice web site I have never seen a Juncker Luft GAB until now, I agree the Juncker is nicer.

I'd have to agree with John Hodgin the GB is my choice.

Kind regards,

Marcus
