    This one is a fake, all RS&S Flottenkriegsabzeichen should have a ball hinge and be made in zinc.

    Hi

    May I recommend a very good reference book on German combat awards: German Combat Awards 1935-1945 Alan Beadle. It is a very useful book.

    Thanks

    This is a fake badge copied from the maker Richard Simm & Sohne.

    This maker only produced this badge in zinc and only with a ball hinge. No wartime made badge of this type in any other combination of materials or hardware has been found.

    Hi Cameron

    I would be careful with this book. Do a search on WAF on its author

    Nick is correct. The reputation of this author is not the best and I would steer clear. Gordon Williamson has brought out an excellent Kriegsmarine Decorations book which would be worth looking into.
