    The bronze is really beautiful in the right lighting. Under the lights of the store I bought the badge at it was almost impossible to see, but in natural light it really pops. I’m beginning to think I may need to add a 100% complete APB to my list!

    Agree with Tom that the broken catch is a shame.

    Nice original Juncker APB with some decent bronze finish remaining. Too bad about the broken catch, but I wouldn't mind it at all for such an uncommon APB variant like this. Congrats on a fine addition.

    Thank you Tom!

    I knew it would be a long time before I found another of this type in any condition, so I took the leap. It’s definitely the crown jewel of my collection right now.

    Bandenkampfabzeichen, Type 4 with Cutouts

    Hi all, to celebrate the forum's upgrade I wanted to share this bandenkampfabzeichen in bronze that I finally picked up when my state re-opened. I've generally moved away from collecting Third Reich awards in favor of the imperial era, but once I got enough positive feedback I couldn't resist this one.

    It is a type four with the rare cutouts, flaws in eye sockets, and stepped skull. There is a good bit of the bronze remaining on the back, but it is almost entirely worn from the front. The pin is bent and the clasp is missing. Regardless of that, it was a bargain and I am excited to own such a rare award.
