          Greetings there! Badge looks appears fine to me w/possible period repair to catch. Who really can ascertain positively regards time frame on any replacement, but that catch can be found on other period pieces as we have seen throughout WAF posts.... All the best.

              Is it only me that think it maybe could be a cast fake?


              Looks like cast if you look at the backside.

              There is also soft details on the eagle.

              Can´t remember that I have seen a GB flak with that catch.

              Wait for the experts to comment this one.

                  GB Flak

                  Kindral,
                  Hello again! As stated sharper/larger images would help and I now see that upper hinge may be a substitute (difficult to discern whether that hinge is scalloped like original issue). However, reverse surface issues could easily be attributed to a delay in the strike during forging process or lack of material. Maker mark looks good IMO. Obverse could use more clarity, but still think she's good.... Just my addendum.
                  Matthew.

                    Those pics is all I have. Suposedly bought from here few years back…
                    Shure better pics would help but is this configuration of pin and catch known on GB flak known to start with?

                      GB Flak

                      Kindral,
                      Well in a strictly yes or no world, I would say the zinc GB Flak shown in your post does not exhibit the catch/hinge assembly usually associated with that piece.
                      That said, I have seen those items on original badges and not necessarily always flaks. They could be substitutes installed due to a variety of reasons. All one mans opinions though...

                        Good Brehmer flak with variant catch, in my opinion not repaired.
