    Hello,

    A question for the Kreigsmarine experts out there. Does anyone know if Adolf Sholtz (maker mark AS in a triangle) ever made a Destroyer badge. Have seen one that looks ok but can find no record of one being manufactured by this maker or with this particular mark. Cannot post an image I am afraid. Grateful for any information.

    As far as I know this maker did not produce Zerstorer Kriegsabzeichen.

    If you can get an image it would be very interesting to see please.

    Yes, a definite fake.

    Interesting to see this as it's a new one on me. I can see the fakers idea, they've used the similar set up from the bogus JFS Zerstorer Kreigsabzeichen thinking it may fool the unwary. There is another fake A.S, in triangle version of this which is far cruder. Charlie Snyder's got one for sale at the moment, a snip at 400 bucks!

    Thanks very much for your replies, I have posted an image of the front now for future ref and to ID this fake badge. As I said, it looked pretty good, scary stuff.
