    Its trying to be a early Freikorps guards badge but these are extremely rare so i am very skeptical about this one.

    could you provide a link to said site ? Because the "Minenwerfer Abteilung Heuschkel." Originals are of a brass origin and then pained black like WW1 wound badges. The book Das Buch vom Deutschen Freikorpskampfer (1938) describes the shield with no mention of raised metal under the MWH. It took me a while to find but a member that was here a wile back with a very impressive FK collection had an image of his which i will display underneath. Personally i think the one you posted is a stamped fake.

    Its on a dealers site, hence name is blocked out below badge ,no raised metal that's just editing of image.
    not sure what metal it is non-ferrous metal which is plated ...
