I'm bad with badges but from the detail im gonna make a guess on saying that it is bad. Maybe a cast iron fake if im right?
I don't like it, looks like a fake that seems to be based on the Karneth/Kriesel design, note how the block hinge appears to be cast into the badge and the semi hollow reverse is more or less non existent. I think this one may have a high lead content looking at it. Not for me.

We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
