Strange seller didnt give you a pic of the front.
(I assume you'd have posted a pic of the front, had the 'abzeichen' been in your possesion).
Anymore thoughts on this one?
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Im no expert but a few things put me off compared to others from this maker
1) The square plate by the propeller seems to big compared to others from this maker
2) The eagle head looks wierd not like the normal one's on a swerin badge
3) The catch looks thin and not thick
4) The maker mark looks soft and letter type is off
Edges don't look sharp or defined enough to me
I'm no expert on these but that just does not look right, that eagle has a deformed head and one side of the badge looks more defined then the other. (or is that the light source?)
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...
also the gun is missing,not for me.
thanks guys will not bid on it,once again great forum saves me money
I would just like to state that I also do not like anything about the badge that started the thread.
Us and them - and after all we’re only ordinary men. Me, and you - God only knows it’s not what we would choose to do. Forward he cried from the rear, and the front rank died, and the general sat and the lines on the map moved from side to side.
