    Well I don't really know the time lines, these are tombak badges which usually ended the production on 1942 IMO and changed to zinc variants.
    The HSF is a type 2 variant, the destroyer is a type 1, about the mine, there is two tombak version exist C-shape flat wire catch and later flat wire catch, so IMO the Mine is also a type 2. Usually the earliest variants can't hold their finish as good as the type 2.

    But its very hard to determine that exactly when they were produced.
    Here is the Schwerin U-boat timeline, this had lot of variants.

    Type 1a: thin neck, large maker mark, dome-head hinge pin, round wire catch (the most common variant, the classic "1st pattern")

    Type 1b: same as Type 1 but unmarked (rare)

    Type 2a (transitional): thick neck, large maker mark, dome-head hinge pin, round wire catch

    Type 2b (transitional): same as Type 2 but unmarked

    Type 3a (transitional): thick neck, large maker mark, dome-head hinge pin, curved flat wire catch

    Type 3b (transitional): same as Type 3 but unmarked

    Type 4a: thick neck, small maker mark, flat waffle-head hinge pin, squared flat wire catch. (rare)

    Type 4b: thick neck, unmarked, waffle-head hinge pin, squared flat wire catch (the second most common variant, the classic "2nd pattern")

    Type 4c: same as Type 4b but headless hinge pin

    Type 5a: thick neck, unmarked, dome-head hinge pin, squared flat wire catch, flipped hinge block (the "S&L catalogue" model)

    Type 5b: same as Type 5a but flat-head hinge pin

    Type 5c: same as Type 5a but headless hinge pin

    Type 6: zinc, thick neck, unmarked, squared flat wire catch on catch plate, typical zincer Schwerin pin setup (rare)
