    I would assume this badge is a fake then because the back pin assembly is completely different from the one shown in the badge pictures above that is real. Seems the eagle is not as defined as well.

    The second badge you show is a more desireable Deumer attributed badge Casey

    Hi Casey,

    the second badge is a perfectly good zinc Deumer with the horizontal pin set up and tophook.

    Just another minesweeper variant from a different maker.

    Here's a photo of the Deumer type badge in wear on a member of a Luftwaffe Mausi unit.
