    Hello Mike,

    For me the badge is a fake. The makers mark is wrong in style, the pin is the wrong shape, the details on the obverse are different from an original and the trimming outlines are incorrect when compare to an original badge.

    My original Schwerin is posted here, do a search and compare the things I've pointed out. Look at the profile of the top of the boat from the reverse and the prow where it protrudes from the wreath. Look at the spacings of the letters in the makers mark and the thickness of them. Try and match the wave details too.

    This badge is close to an original and was made to deceive.

    In my opinion this is a well made fake, just as Adrian said.
    The hardware is a pretty good attempt but on the observe there are several promlems, like the waves, eagle's head and wings, detail of the ship, finish's colour.
    Here is mine to compare:

    the short wings give it away.

    There are more indicators than the length of the wings - which look ok to me?
