Yes, a good piece. No doubt some of the others will be able to tell you the maker too.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I agree with the others here...an original IAB attributed to the firm of Schauerte & Hohfeld in zinc.
These are one of the smallest Infanterie Sturmabzeichen's (Height & Width) and can be tough to find.
It's unfortunate about the missing hinge and pin.
