Default Gold Recon and Bronze Flight Clasps for Review

Hello All,

I’d like some opinions on these clasps I have been offered. Both look to be unmarked tombac Junker pieces.

Thanks,

Nathan

Wrong forum, please move the the Luftwaffe Badges Forum. This is what I get for trying to use my phone.

The Bronze Fighter clasp looks post war S&L to me. It’s certainly no Junker.

The gold recon looks ok to me with the standard junker filing marks on the reverse and typical pin but let’s wait for others comments before you buy.

The lack of lines on the arrow shaft are an easy way to determine that this is a bad Fighter clasp.

Recon is a good Juncker.

I can only agree with the others, the fighter is a common fake but the gold Recon is a fine original.

This is a very accurate observation and releases from further ID ... for comparison
