    Default Kriegsabzeichen für Minensuch help please

    Hi guys
    I strongly suspect that this is a copy. So would someone please confirm this.
    I got it for nothing so its no great loss if it is.
    The oak leaves are silver should they not be gold?
    The splash is gold should it not be silver?
    Did K.WAGNER even make these badges?
    Bad detail on the tips of the splash.
    The picture makes the oak leaves look like they are painted silver where they meet the eagle but its not paint its silver wash badly applied.
    Please excuse my ignorance.
    Thanks
    Rod

    British copy.

    It is a fake. Even a real one is this condition (Someone seriously messed up with their repaint job, especially since the water and wreath colors should be switched.) would not be worth buying, in my opinion.

    This maker is not a known original manufacturer of KM badges, as far as I know.

    It's a fake just as János says. This maker didn't make Minensuch badges which is about as far as we need to go. The colouring is just plain wrong and weird, a search through the forum will provide enough comparison badges to see how they should be coloured. Gold wreath, grey waves and silver spout.
    Take a look at Norm's thorough Minensuch reference thread here and you will be left in no doubt. The classification table on page two lists all the makers and variants thereof.

    Thanks guys I thought as much as I did a good search on the forum before posting.
    But I just wanted confirmation
    I got it for nothing so nothing lost. Another item for the back of the draw.
    Thanks again
