It´s not attributed to the company of Steinhauer & Lück.
Looks like a Hammer & Söhne attributed badge imo. But i am not a big expert for this H&S badges. I have a collector friend which is a variant collector for the Erdkampfabzeichen. But is looking o.k. so far imo.
I agree with Joe, it's original. A typical Hammer & Sohne attributed badge, the design is that used originally by Juncker IIRC.

I agree with Joe and Ned.
You can compare with my example posted here. This one is in pretty much the same condition as mine.

Thank you very much gents appreciated greatly. This example will be my first hence my poor call re maker. At 175 US I am a happy camper for sure. Thanks again for your replies.
All the best
Hi, a fine looking award, a nice original that in my opinion was a bargain at that price. Leon.
