    Hi all!

    What do you think about this badge? it's original or not?
    It comes with a certificate, but in the other hand, don't know if the certificate is original or no.. so both could be fakes, or both originals, what do you think?

    I would like to have better photos, but this in the only ones that i have

    Thank you very much!!

    looks a zinc one to me that absorbed it finish.

    Hm... he calls it an original zincer with completely replaced reverse hardware. Base metal looks off to me, it's not like any known maker's S-Boat badge and it's heavier than any known maker's S-Boat badge. In my opinion it's likely just an old post-war fake.

    Best regards,

    I am not too keen on this one either.

    Norm has summed it up petty well i think.

    As Norm has said, that base metal does not look right at all, I have heard that towards the end of Mr Niemann's time trading there were quite a few instances of fakes being "certified" good. I'm guessing he may have had other "experts" doing the authenticating who made mistakes, so I would not hold to much credence to the certificate personally. Leon.

    The certificate is the 1st red flag. Detlev got away for far too many years pretending to be the unquestionable voice of authenticity...
