Nice zinc award Ade.
Here is a tombak piece i used to own.
I beleive Schwerin used two sets of dies for their Blockadebrecher production,the "dishback",seen here and above,and what we call the "flatback'.The "flatback' has a smaller and wider spaced font on the maker mark and does not feature the semi-scooped reverse as seen on the "dishback"
Examples in both tombak and zinc can be found from either set of dies.

Hello Nick. Don't tell me that you bought it !!!
You broke the, first post and then buy rule ?
No stratos.he did not bought it.
''From now on first i picture the items, post it here and then i open my wallet ))''
The above confused me ; )
maybe Nick had in the past made bad choiches with other items and now he says he will never again open his wallet before he picture it.But in the past.Now he is more wise and took a photo from Abzeichen Für Blockadebrecher before he buy it (κοινως την εχει πατησει και του εχει γινει μαθημα.γαμω τα αγγλικα μου)
No no Strato.
I didnt bought it !
Thanks God ))
Thank you very much Martin !
The information about "flatback'" and "dishback" was very useful.
And thanks everybody for the detailed pictures !
The pins of the original pieces are completely different from the fake that i post it.
And the eagles nose if you see is not the same
Nice looking zincer Leon.
