    Default Schnellboat 2nd Class-fake? Complete Novice!

    Hi,

    Am a complete novice in the medal field (and female! *winks)

    My father has passed several German medals onto me,they were collected by his brother and have remained in storage for at least 25 years until his death recently.

    I have googled as much as I can on these medals and think I have a 2nd class Schnellboot badge in the collection but am not totally sure as I'm a no expert.

    Please can you inform me if this is a genuine badge and what it's worth if it is.I really don't want to be ripped off when selling it and would like to be informed.

    Many thanks for looking.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Always nice to have another lady member on board.

    The badge is original and well done on trying to get the correct German terminology right One slight correction: it is a 2nd pattern badge, not a second class.

    Value is in the region of 500.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade,

    Many thanks for taking the time to reply.

    Right-2nd pattern Gotcha!

    I really appreciate knowing it's not a fake as a dealer had said it was (I won't say anymore!!!!)

    Thanks again.

    Congrats with this great looking badge! nice touch of age to it!
    always wanted one but as ade already said €600 is a lot of money for one badge.

    greetings Eddy.

    Thanks guys

    Like I said,this badge was handed to me via my father along with 5 german medals,am quite happy to chat off the board if anyone is interested.I'd rather it went to someone who appreciated it as otherwise it's going to end up forgotten in a draw here (it has resided in my uncles shed for the last 2 decades!)

    Regards
