    Actually Nick they can very easily be mistaken or Forster & Barth set ups! They are very similar, I actually thought my badge was an F&B for years until Norm pointed out the subtle differences.
    I'll unashamedly use one of Norm's pics of Minesweepers to demonstrate how similar they are. S&L on the left, F&B on the right. Ignore the red arrows in this instance, this is to show the hinge/pin/catch similarities.

    Wow, yes they are very close. Only a trained eye would be able to identify one from the other.

    Thank you for the comparisons

    Very nice, Didier. Looks good. Are you buying this one? I like these badges. I'm not a badge collector but I do own two of these. Good luck!
