I would say it is a fake beacause it is a hallow backed one and if I am not mistaken they did not make them in hallow backes. They came in semi-hallow and sollid. So I would say stay away from it.

Good call. Bad to the bone. It is one of the stamped non-zinc badges that has been around a while.

Hell no, I'd've taken the same steps to see if it was original, wouldn't want to pass up on a good one

reverse detail

Please note that as far as I am aware there was NEVER any rear detail on there awards that showed through from the front. They were smooth backed Juncker pieces and the half hollow types but none showed the leaf wreath etc through to the back, if you see one of these just walk away, don't even think 'maybe', if you want a real one.
