    A well know fake.

    This type of badge has been dicussed before on other forums.In fact, am i correct in saying that this particular badge is also being dicussed at WAF right now ?

    These badges are normally very heavy,weighing in at about 45.gms.The average tombak Schwerin 1st pattern was about 32.4 gms.

    Not much i can add without posting direct links to other forums,but again as a newcomer here i am not sure of this forums policies in regards to adding links from other fora ?

    All in all,a bad one IMO.

    Regards,Martin.

    Hi Z4 , all I will add is that in my main area of interest , helmets(although I do collect badges) I would be looking at this and also feel it were a fake. The reason being that the reverse shows signs of artificial wear such as the sanding/rubbing down marks and yet the obverse is immaculate! On a helmet it would suggest artificial aging on a modern re-paint and I would apply these same thoughts to badges! Also I will add that even though Martin has only been on this forum a short while he is a very knowledgeable gentlemen on Kriegsmarine badges so you can trust his opinion 100%!! Leon.
