    Default Just acquired Schwerin Schnellboot-Kriegsabzeichen.

    I just got this, so I thought I would let you guys kick it around. The finish is a bit dull, but a can of gold spray paint will fix that right up.

    OK, just kidding. But what do you think? It weighs 38.3 grams, is ~57.2mm tall and ~45mm wide. My problem with the badge is that it just looks crude, and what is the red and pink stuff on the inner edges?

    There are many differences between this one and known original Schwerin badges. The finish, the details, the trimming lines, the makers mark are just a few examples.........
