Above are 2 examples of IMME (or JMME) made parabadges. You can see that there are 2 distinct styles for the eagle. It is believed one is a Juncker sourced eagle and the other by IMME.
 

Later examples are constructed from zinc with the wreath blackened and the eagle finished with a gold wash, this often deteriorate to a dull gold colour. The later badges wreath has the appearance of being dark grey, almost black.
