    Hi Steve,

    The small block hinge and pin is certainly very similar to both S&L marine badges like the zinc u-boat late war badge and also is a type seen on various Deumer badges too. The catch could make one think possibly Souval as well, but looking closely at the top of the pin near the bend for the hinge, is that the notorious S&L 57 'scrape' that can just be seen?

    Here's a few examples.

    Regards, Ned.

    Absolutely Ned ! thanks for your interjection here on this badge, my take too, a St u L badge and probably one of the earliest of there 57er's wound badges.........................
    Prost !Steve.
