Default Probable fake GAB 50 ?

These aren't my area of expertise so I would appreciate confirmation of it being a fake, which I believe it is after spending a few hours studying them.
Thanks in advance.

I can only agree with Jeff, a pretty easy fake since the detail is quite poor on the obverse compared with originals and the reverse hardware is also incorrect for Juncker (or any other #GAB maker for that matter).

Thanks guys, I appreciate it.

I'm curious as to how they attach the eagle to the wreath on these?
Looks to me as if the heads of the rivets are fake as well and part of the wreath casting. Therefore do they simply glue to two parts together?

Yea, it looks like the rivets are part of the wreath casting so the eagle must be glued or soldered on, but probably glued like you surmised.
