Default Luftwaffe Pilot / Observer Badge

Hey guys, what do you think? I don't know much about these but it is for sale. The seller is asking for an offer but I see several different prices for these and not sure what makes one more valuable over another. Any insights would be appreciated.

I agree, a good gwl po in worn condition!
I would say in that condition +-2000-2500€

Rivets have been tightened too, around the 2K mark would be fair.

Is the swastika re-attached? Maybe I'm seeing something that isn't there but on both obverse and reverse I can see a line where the swastika meets the eagle.

Good GWL PO with tightened rivets. I see Rik line on swas but I think its fine but be sure to have a close look at this.

I can only agree with the guys, an original GWL in really nice condition on the obverse, but with tightened rivets as Seb says.
