I think it's O.K. There's a pretty good copy of these known under the generic term as the 'Cave Creek Fake' that covers several KM award copies but I think this is a genuine zinc Schwerin CA badge. Better wait for Martin, Norm or Jody to take a look though as they're the KM guys.

I agree with Ned. Looks like a good worn Schwerin zinc Coastal Artillery badge.
worn but good.
I agree, it's good.
That is a very nice original zinc Schwerin you have there Mike.
I like it.

Hi Ned, Norm, Martin and all,
thank you very much for your help. I am really glad this forum is here with the people willing to help.
Hi Mike, the boys are spot on as usual, a very nice Zinc Schwerin award. I love the "bubbling" to the reverse, a good sign of an original piece. Leon.
