    You are right friend. It is very poorly cast.

    I would say that this is an original tombak Schwerin that is in a very poor,corroded state.

    The mainpin,including toolmarks and the catch look typical Schwerin.Feint remnants of the maker mark can be seen also.

    I may be wrong but this is my opinion.

    Cheers,Martin.

    I think you need to take a closer look at the obverse ?

    I see heavy corrosion on the gun and the housing.

    This badge has been discussed on another forum,as i just found out,and was deemed original but as mentioned,in very poor condition.

    Cheers,Martin.

    I think it's original but has been affected by intense heat at sometime and perhaps then buried in soil or sand, or even picked out of the ashes of a fire. The hardware and tool marks are as Martin states, bang on for an original Schwerin made badge. Just for interest, here's a close up of some melted brass from an old padlock I threw on a fire when burning the remains of an old shed. The similarities are startling. It's just a scenario, but I can easily imagine this badge as being burnt and buried for some considerable time before it was found.
