    While it looks good at first glance there are a couple of issues that are waving red flags for me.
    First of all the pin and hinge are the type normally found on Souval's post war products. I have never seen a period example of their badges with this pin.
    Secondly the material looks incorrect. Souval only (someone correct me if I'm wrong) made their Kriegsmarine badges in zinc or kriegsmetall. The badge above looks more like tombak or brass. It could be the photos though.
    My opinion is that it is a post war made badge.
