    Many thanks for your help gentlemen. He is my 'dealer' and he is only asking $195 for it. I will take pictures of it and post them here of course.

    Adrian, your example is quite nice.
    $195 is remarkably cheap for an original - depending on condition of course.

    You guys all have some great ones. I can't wait to join the club!

    I asked him about the condition, and he said that nothing was broken, and that it was very nice, so I'm guessing it's not a dug badge. I can't wait to go see it!

    I asked him how much he had on it, and he said "$195"... and my heart skipped a beat.

    Well gentlemen,

    I went down to the shop today and reserved it. I have to bring the other half to him next week.

    When I saw it, I was very pleased to find that it was a FIRST pattern, not a SECOND pattern as it was described. The material felt very nice and tombaky. Nothing was broken and it had most of its finish. I took a crash course on S-boot badges the other day, and I am 99% certain that this is a good one. I asked him why he was selling it at such a low price, and he said that he "paid about right for it". This is why he is my favorite dealer.

    Anyway, here are a couple of photos. I am very sorry about the quality. I had to use the ersatz camera today...

    What do you fellows think?

    Mo, it looks good but I have my doubts about this one. It is very close to an original badge but there are many subtle differences in details between this and known and accepted original badges.

    Hi Adrian,

    Could you please note the details you are talking about? I can get better photos of them if you would like.

    I just made another comparison and I now see the details you are talking about, particularly the elongated swastika, the wider lines on the boat, and the crooked maker's mark. Is this a common variation or does this make it a fake badge?
