All of these KuK and Hungarian flight badges have been faked so heavily and for such a long period of time that it's anybody's guess how the collector's market for them will recover.  Collectors have been avoiding buying items with too much controversy and these various Flight Badges are notorious for extremely well made fakes circulating throughout the collecting community. Simi.

Agreed.   The books are a first step and place a high-priority on fakes.    Known fakes are sold everyday on the Ebays for high prices, but people won't invest in books....

I don't have any of these books myself, but they certainly look very comprehensive and well researched.  If they go into detail about how to distinguish original badges from fake badges, they are definitely a "must-have" for any serious collector.  Now the problem is overcoming the controversial impression (for lack of a better term) that many would-be collectors have formed about these badges.  The collectors' market is just plain "spooked" and when that happens to any category of collectible, it has a negative impact on market prices.
