A STINKER AND A SINKER

Post by WCSTUMP » 30 Oct 2002 00:08

1. It stinks.

2. It would make a good sinker for a fishing line.

It is just another fake and may I ask where you come up with all this junk?

Fake

Post by Matt Gibbs » 30 Oct 2002 08:45

Yes, Bill tells it how it is I am afraid, not a good badge.
Lack of frontal detail
Poor cut outs
Casting marks on the reverse
Wrong type of catch
Also in my opinion for the type of wear it is 'aged' with, there is a lot of silver finish remaining, to my mind it would need to be darker but this might just be a quality of the scan.

To put it simply:

The first type made by Junkers are die stamped.

The second type are I believe vacuum cast. It is not known how many manufacturers there were of the second type which had slight variations to the original Junkers pieces. One variation was a twist to the sword hilt. See picture:

Twist

Post by Matt Gibbs » 05 Nov 2002 13:18

The handle twist is a characteristic of this version of the award. It is in the handle of the sword and it is twisted slightly out of the flat plane of the badge, hard to describe in words but it appears to be twisted so that the sunwheel is slightly 'down' on the left side of the badge as viewed at the front. I hope this makes sense ir someone else can have a go at explaining it! :D
I think it is hard to find a genuine example of this badge and certainly there will be few bargains to be had of genuine dealers who know what they have got.
