OK.

A copy.

But .................. a 'limited edition' copy.

For only a few quid.

And ................ with a certificate !!!!! :cheeky:

In actual fact, not a bad representation of a Juncker original.

At least .................. from the front side. :whistle:

What else could you expect for around $20.

Two easily obtainable fakes together ...................... Goede repro of a Juncker alongside a Morigi repro of a (former) 'Meybauer' or (now) 'unknown maker'.

And here's the very cheap Goede copy alongside the mega-expensive original of Sepp Dietrich.

Not a bad effort, IMHO.

Well .... the "Dietrich Original" ..... I wouldn't trust it!

Until today I have never ever seen a picture of an original Kampfwagen-Abzeichen with eye socket worked-out. And I am talking about pictures taken in the era BEFORE 1945 ! And I have seen a lot of them in the last 25 years.

It seems to me that worked-out eye socketes are an American speciality to these kind of copies.

Beware: I am NOT talking about (original) hollow awards! Because with a hollow award we would have: front: eye sockets worked out, but back: plate NOT worked out.

Please take my apologies for my bad English!

What is the origin/Pedigree of the Dietrich one?

Well ... Sepp Dietrich wore two different types.

The "1st type" was a totaly unusual one. By unusual I mean that this badge was more like the one on the original award documents. It seems that he was the only one who wore such a type. Due to that fact my conculsion is: must have been made only for him. Maybe a silver one, made by a jeweler. Anyway ... not part of the dicussion.

The "2nd type" is the one shown here in this thread. It seems that he wore this one from the mid or late 1930's on. On all pictures I have seen hiim wearing this one, my conclusion is: it must be a hollow one.

The same conclusion I do have on the badge worn by Theodor Larsen and by Hans Steinhardt. For other "tankers" I can not make any statement.

Three tankers .................

Left one is Major Volckheim, second could be Weißmann and right could be Müller (but not 100% sure).
