Hello all, new here and would like thoughts on this Pilot badge.

Recommended Posts

Consensus from other collectors is this is genuine , a IMME pilots badge, built from Junckers parts. 
 

I wanted to post here to get more opinions.

 

thanks is in advance!

I am not keen on it, I can't explain it! If I seen it I would not buy it unless it was a couple of €. The finish just looks off for me?

Well, Looking at other accepted variations of this award, I would say this one seems to conform to accepted pieces.  I would like to  see the catch and the clasp retainer a bit better.  If this was in my collection, I would think this is a good piece.  This is my opinion. 

 

Best Regards,

Done a bit of research. Yes it conforms. Bit confused that many sites list the Company as JMME & SONNE or IMME. They are clearly the same maker IMME, as back then a capital I was written as J? Quite straight forward. It is still not as sharp as many I have viewed online, could be worn dies as the war progressed and I doubt Junker would sell their best strikes to a competing firm? Who knows? To be honest pilot badges have never interested me. Too many variables for my liking.
