Hi, it looks good to me. There are plenty of these around and they are nice awards. It has some wear and you shouldn't pay much for it.
A complete KvK with ribbon will only cost you around $35...something to consider before spending money on this one.
Moved to the correct forum.
There is no problem with this piece. An original in zinc with a reasonable amount of finish left. Unless it is very cheap I would hang on for one with a ribbon, these are a very common award.
One more thing, just because it looks the same as one in a book, doesn't always mean a piece is original. Fakes look like those images in books too.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
There's a really nice one for sale in the classifieds
