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.

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.

If it doesn't have a hinge and catch, I'm not interested......well, maybe a little
