    Hello,

    If I'm sure, LDO number was not stamped one the u-boat badge... I think so the quality is too bad. Precision is missing.

    But it's not only my opinion.

    I agree with the above comments.

    A fake based on the Schwerin design with a spurrious "20" mark stamped on the reverse.

    It would be nice to see a reverse image with the pin down,if possible ?

    Regards,Martin.

    Hello,
    The badge is as bad as they come. I have seen this type of fake before.

    I agree with the others. A common enough older fake although I hadn't seen one marked "20" before. They often have a fake "Schwerin" mark like the attached example. They have variably cut margins as well.

    Best regards,
