    Looks like leftover parts Souval made up after the war to sell badges to naive collectors...
    Thank you for this information. I had no idea about this.

    I've heard that Steinhauer & Luck made medals and sold to the allied soldiers as souvenirs.

    Souval was one of-if not The worst of the lot for doing this. They produced badges, awards and medals by the tons for a long time after the war's end. They Did make them During the war as well, which complicates things considerably....

    You may be correct Norm,but i see no evidence of the maker mark being "ground off" ??

    Hard to say. The photos aren't high enough resolution to see the surface detail. It seems more likely to me that it was there originally and then ground off. The later post-war Souval cast versions without the "R.S" mark also lack the outlines for the hinge and catch.

    Here in Australia 'RS' has quite a different meaning........ a bit like NBG but not as polite
