Hello, I am really not liking this piece for many reasons. Firstly the metal appears to be a shinny alloy that could easily be bent under pressure. The swastika is out of shape and lacking the detail that would be seen on original pieces. Finally the reverse looks to be very pitted due to cheap casting and the rivets also appear to be wrong.
Original pilot badges are $400+ for late war zinc types, and up to
around $1,500 for quality cased badges.........
Hi and welcome to the forum!
Sadly it is a paper weight.

Hello and welcome!
Sadly, you've got a paperweight. A cast fake of poor quality.
Hopefully your next post will bring better news!
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
