    Id pass on it, very strange hardware and the finish looks off to me. There are many unquestionable pieces out there.

    The twisted pin is interesting. This was reportedly a 'fashionable' thing to do by the awards recipient, and i've seen genuine DK's and EK1's from the period with the pin similarly twisted around it's own axis like this example. I know next to nothing about KVK's, but haven't observed this trait on any fake awards as of yet.

    Its not that, to me it does not look like zinc, it looks like its trying to be tombak. Im still on the fence about this piece.

    Ok im giving this a thumbs up now . Its an unmarked 62 with a replaced pin, this one is a variant by Kerbach & Österhelt that is zinc but looks like tombak.

    Details seem good to me, IMO an S&L with original pin. If marked, the mm will now be on the inside of the pin.
