A reproduction unfortunately. This type of hinge/pin/catch was never used on period awards.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
I agree with Adrian. A fake.
The obverse seemed ok to me but the reverse has issues. I agree that the pin and catch are not normal.
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
Certainly a repro. Apart from wrong hardware the detail is poor
