Default Hobacher Heeres Flak

I just purchased this badge from a long time association member - Iíve read through several threads that indicate Hobachers are known for a sometimes sloppy solder job on the catch - is this just sloppiness or is it a repair? The thin thread you see in the pix is just a piece of thread that was stuck to the badge - it came off easily.

Thanks!

Well, after reading more posts regarding these badges Iíve decided that the catch has been replaced since itís brass or bronze, and the consensus seems to be that the hardware should all be magnetic. Any comments would be appreciated!

Hi!

The overall look should be like this one.

Cheers, Peter
