    Default Schnellboot 2nd pattern (Schwerin)

    Hello guys, what are your thoughts on this e-boat award by Schwerin that I have seen. The front looks ok to me but the reverse gives me cause for concern. It may just be "distortion" from zinc pest but I am wary of the "shaping" to some of the manufacturers text on the reverse. Any thoughts are appreciated, Leon.

    IMO it's a good one Leon.

    A Schwerin variant with the cut-outs around the flag and swastika.

    Reverse hardware and maker mark are spot on.

    I would only question the obverse gilding.Hard to tell if it is original or not.

    Cheers,Martin.

    Hi Martin, thanks for those thoughts, I liked the hardware and "strike" myself, there is just that something that niggles me, maybe it is the gilding and not the zinc pest!! Leon.
