    The only first type badges in tombak were made by Schwerin and this isn't a Schwerin badge. The reverse set up looks like S&L but these should only be found in zinc. I'm fairly convinced it's a repro but would like some better and closer pics of the front and back to be sure.

    Hi Robert, sorry it is bad.

    These had a horizontal pin.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade, S&L made a first pattern badge with a vertical pin set up although I'm a long way from being convinced the badge above is an original example of one of those.

    Sorry,it's bad for me to. I don't like the reverse,especially the "soft" edges. Stewy

    Looks like a whole bunch of casting pits on the reverse also.

    i,ve had one exact to this, if the reverse is full of very small pin holes? it feels nice and solid, nice detail, but mine was 100% fake, some sort of soft metal...and agree on the pin set up as well..should be horizontal...
