    You've got some really good pictures, there. I can't help you though. Here's a free bump for more replies. The best of luck to you! I think it stands a good chance.

    Hi

    Sorry this is a fake Schwerin U-Boat badge. I haven't seen this pin set-up on Schwerin U-Boat badges.

    See link for known variations:

    Thanks

    Hi Belgrano,

    Unfortunately Cameron is correct, this is a fake badge. Schwerin didn't make a horizontal pin U-Boot badge. This also looks like it should be zinc and in this case you won't find a marked zinc Schwerin U-Boot so please let the seller know it's a fake and don't buy it.

    I also loaded your photos to the forum from imageshack. It's always best to do this so the thread remains useful even if the photos are deleted from the hosting site.

    Really well done on your research Cameron.
