    Hi Leon,

    It's a genuine piece. There is in my opinion a better example currently in the Classifieds at a very competitive price unless it's already sold, that was discussed here a while back. If I collected these badges i'd have like taken it myself by now.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi Ned , thanks for that , I did e-mail the seller of the one in our classified section a while back offering the full asking price but I never received a response? You are quite right that that one is a bit nicer than this one but I guess it is no longer for sale! Cheers , Leon.

    I just ordered this one , it will go nicely in the cabinet and as you may remember Ned , I personally like a badge that shows a bit of use rather than a "minty" one so this one will do me nicely! Thanks again for your opinion , Leon.

    Indeed,a nice original Schwerin Leon that shows wear,nothing wrong with that IMO.

    Minty examples are nice to have in ones collection but i do like badges that are worn and especially if they come with provenance from the recipients.
    I am just refering to some of the Hilfskreuzer badges i have in my collection here,but i think it applies to all war badges.

    Regards,Martin.
