Looks okay so far but of course you need to see the obverse as well. It's a zinc Type 1.1.6 but it's not made by Otto Placzek. Placzek created the design for the Minesweeper badge and his name is included within the maker mark of C. Schwerin & Sohn. That's why you see "Fec. [designed] Otto Placzek Berlin" and "Ausf. [manufactured] Schwerin Berlin" on the reverse.
Hi, I think that it is a good one as well, correct hinge, catch and the "style" of text looks correct to, but as Norm says, a front image would be good. Leon.

The badge looks good to me too. To be honest I would want to see the obverse of the badge and frankly looking at the condition of the back I would pass.
This is a common badge and nice examples (escpecially early examples) are not that difficult to obtain.
well oke ...
thanks for all help and info
you all been a great help !!
