Default HAUPTMNZAMT GWB reattached catch?

Looks like the catch might have been reattached? Does this look like it has and I’m thinking it’s a good one with wide pin
Thanks
Mike

Sorry but that one is a fake. The obverse design donīt match up with original 30 badges. This one infact has one berry too much at the left sword tip which is a no-no.

I can only agree, a very good fake. The reverse is really well done with the circular pattern and wide pin, very similar to originals. But has the others have pointed out, several red flags when it comes to the obverse design, finish, etc.

Bad fake. Everything is immediately visible on the helmet. Reverse is not needed. Often it occurs.
