    Cheers.

    i marked some things you guys observed, the hinge base overlaps on the other badge too, mines hinge is just better tho... and the back has the same indentations. I don't see why its a fake, but im enjoying this learning curve, more opinions please guys.

    look at the globe on the back the original sticks out a lot more yours is a cast making it smaller and "softer"

    I have to agree with the opinions posted. Although it looks simular to the originals i have owned there are differences, as Stewy says "It wouldn't be for me"
    Sorry, it's a minefield. Thanks to the likes of Herr Stagmier

    I've never been a fan of Bacqueville badges. There are just too many questions surrounding them for me to be comfortable to shell out my wages on a 'maybe' badge. I know some experienced collectors have them in their collections and are convinced they're the real thing but equally I know of some experienced collectors who won't give them space.
    Regarding the badge in question, I am not sure it is a Staegemeir reproduction, these, I believe have a different look to the back in terms of the way the material flows into the mold. That said, I'm not entirely convinced by it. The feathers on the eagle are a bit indistinct and don't look right but there are things I do like as well as the issues already pointed out.
    Either way, a Bacqueville badge 'wouldn't be for me' and I would be looking for a safer and less controversial badge to start a Kriegsmarine collection.

    Okey..I'll say my opinion here. For what it's worth, I believe that it's a genuine Baqueville badge. Whether the Baqueville's were Genuine and war-time issued, is anybody's guess. Baqueville's were crude and poorly made, and the various odd differences seen on this piece, I believe , are simply due to the crudeness of their manufacture. I have to say that I would not consider including one in any collection I had, though, due solely to the questionable nature of the time of their manufacture. William
