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?

Re: Just acquired Schwerin E-Boat
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.........
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
