Default Poellath Bavarian Air Gunner?

Hey guys, could this be a real Poellath Air Gunner?
It has the 800 stamp on the back and possibly scratched off Poellath maker mark above the silver stamp, which is not unseen of course. We see plenty of the so called “distributor” badges like that.
The over lighted pics wash away the details, which are super obscured anyway by the finish of the badge. These are the only pics I have.
If I listen to REASON, these are pics are not good enough for purchase, it’s too good to be true!
What is Your opinion?

Good badge in my opinion and I know the auction site it is shown on ,due for sale shortly . It compares very well with the examples I have in my collection. I believe it is the same one as the piece shown in Carsten Baldes reference . Donít know why you donít like it , itís wonderful !

That badge is in a fabulous condition. Most likely it never saw daylight and spent it's life in a drawer. You can also find many Juncker badges with the maker mark scratched away. Beauty, although i prefer them with some wear. You don't have many chances to buy a genuine example.
