It is a cast copy as indicated by the casting flaws and porosity on the obverse and reverse, as well as the cast hinge and catch.

can you show a reverse image of the second badge ??
I just do not recall seeing an original Schwerin with a "silvered" anchor before.
sorry took me a while, thanks for the reactions, for Martin I pun in 2 pics of the other badge
Thanks for posting the additional image Robert.
I'm sorry to say but this is a fake also IMO.
The reverse hardware and maker mark are incorrect and like i mentioned earlier,i do not recall seeing an original tombak Schwerin with a "silvered anchor"..
Hi, I am sorry to have to agree with Martin, but he is 100% correct in saying that these are both fake awards. One a poor cast and the other has incorrect hardware for a Schwerin piece. Leon.

Thank for youre conclusions, hurts a bit for the second award as it is a complete cased set and paid value for it, some years ago guaranteed original, but it is what it is
Sorry to hear this Robert.
I hate to be the bearer of bad news but my gut feeling is not good on this one...I'd like to hear more opinions too.
If the seller is still in buisness i hope you can get your money returned.
