    Thank you Jim. I found this pin with a paratrooper pin. I totally forgot I had the 2. I rather like the piece myself! A lovely L/50

    I don't know anything about war badges, so please forgive me if this a very stupid comment, but I don't see this maker (L/50, Gebr. Godet & Co.) listed as having manufactured the U-Boot Kriegsabzeichen. Is it common for firms to make the miniature but not the full-size version? I may also have missed the L/50 U-boat badge on the list. If so, I apologize.

    I suppose I can show the paratrooper pin sometime. I have others badges I can show also.

    Hi Guys,

    I'm sorry to say this mini is not an original. The same type was posted for an opinion on WAF, interestingly also from Virginia, USA, but this one was stamped L/58 without rectangle instead of L/50 in rectangle. Two spurious maker marks I'm afraid, trying to lend legitimacy to the mini. You can also see that the knurling on the pin goes in the opposite direction from usual -- not a deal breaker by itself but more common on post-war minis than wartime minis. Finally that funky eagle design is unlike any wartime U-Boat design I've ever seen.

    Best regards,
    ---Norm
