imo its ok just a variation.
The guys on WAF have given it a thumbs down. It's such well made and detailed badge too. I'm having a hard time finding another badge like this one. Surely this has been identified before?
I would agree with those who identified it as a fake. There are several differences between this badge and known, original Osang produced pieces. From the front it looks acceptable at first glance but looking in comparison shows several discrepancies. The reverse is a good attempt but again, there are differences. The makers mark too.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
