    I have to admit I'm puzzled by this one. On the one hand it has surface defects on both the reverse and the obverse that look like casting artifacts, but on the other hand the hardware and crimp look correct and the obverse detail is also good. Given that these RK badges were cast rather than struck, could it just be a defective original production? So far, I'm on the fence.

    Could we see some closeups of the catch and of the hinge with the pin up?

    Best regards,

    I found a link with Original of, it is a copy of truth

    It could very well be a copy, but it's not 100% clear on these photos. As mentioned, the surface defects are very suspicious, and it's clear they were part of the surface before the finish was applied and not dents occurring afterwards from wear.

    Nevertheless, the tooling mark on the upper part of the pin looks very close to originals, as does the faint maker mark and the crimped catch. (In the original used in the attached comparisons the catch was loose in the crimp and rotated 180 degrees, but you get the idea anyway).

    If we saw other copies with the same surface defects (as is the case with many Staegemeir high-end fakes) then that would be the clincher that this is a fake, but so far this is the only odd one like this to show up on the forums.

    Certainly it's not a "one look, thumbs down" badge (although it may still end up as a "fourth look, thumbs down" badge eventually).

    Best regards,
    ---Norm

    Decent U-Boat badges are not difficult to find-nor are they generally too costly. If there is need for debate and controversy on this one, it would be nothing but a source of unease for you. Personally, I would pass on it and wait for a nice condition one with no uncertainty. If even Norm is hesitant on it, for what it's worth, my thoughts on it would still be ...
