There are indeed two different die sets for the Schwerin zinc Coastal Artillery badge. Type 1 is for all Tombak production and some zinc whereas Type 2 is exclusively in zinc. Comparison attached.

Good to know.
Hi happily stand corrected! Thanks Norm for the instructive pictures, I never thought of a worn down die! Leon.
