    This is a U-Boat badge that a friend asked me to post on the forum for opinions. I do not know much about these but it has some characteristics that say it has a chance of being good. Thank you all in advance for your help!

    It does look very similar, enough to make you look suspiciously in Floch's direction I think!

    And that is what I was told as well, that they did not make these. But here it sits. I wonder, unless this is just a poorly thought out fake, if it could be a prototype for one that they were going to make? Just a thought but as I said I know nothing about these. Unless I am just missunderstanding what you both are talking about and you are talking about a know fake you just have to forgive my ignorance.

    Sorry Jeff, I should've finished the sentance and been absolutely clear.
    Frank & Reif didn't make U-boot badges............ this badge is a well known fake that has been around for a number of years, possibly originating from Floch.
