    Black HJ achievement badge converted to Silver?

    Black_changed_to_silver_4.JPG

    I take back everything i`ve said about "B-stücke" , i just got my first one, and in keeping with the rest of them that i have, an early bird as well, only B stamped.
    Even though the kid has scalped the edges and arrow to expose the silver. The horizontal view is the same as i was hoping it would be on this one, the Glockenform In the Spring 2010 Military Advisor, there is a good photo of a "converted" badge being worn. So albeit a early B-Stück, there's a story behind it. (well, that's how i justified the purchase to myself anyway)

    I'd agree Jo. Someone has clearly put some effort into removing it. The fact that the reverse still has the finish makes you think that it was period rather than done last week. Makes sense.
