Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgThis is the Army version of the Flak Badge.  It is marked W.H. Wien. The W.H. army flak badge causes some collectors a few headaches as there are some who believe that none are authentic. I believe this badge is good. The zinc looks right and it just feels right. Now we get to the fuckery. The badge details are great, but it’s silvery in colour. These are a greenish grey in fact. That plus the retaining hook makes me think this one is a fake.

    I have one like this except the back has no markings. Is that an indication that it is fake?

    • No, some of the makers did not mark their badges. Having said that these are heavily faked :(. The best idea would be to take a couple of good pics, put them up on Flickr or similar and post to the WAF forums at
