    Hi , the Adler's head looks poor to me but maybe it is just the angle of the picture. I would add that for a Scherwin badge ,the quality does seem a bit lacking but again , maybe it is just the effect from the "flash". Leon.

    I will see if the selling will send pictures without the flash. Thanks

    It's a definate fake.

    The maker mark is incorrect,as is the reverse hardware.

    It is supposed to be tombak example but features a circular catch plate that is found on zinc awards.

    Could be a Staegemeir fake but i haven't looked at his site lately.

    Definately not an original Schwerin IMO.

    Regards,Martin.

    Glad to be of help Anzel.

    Out of curiosity,was this badge for sale on a dealer site or was it from a private seller ?

    Cheers,Martin.

    Private seller near me. He bought it from "go antiques" who ever they are... Why have you seen it before?

    Never seen it before Anzel.

    I was just trying to determine if Staegemeir was the possible maker ?

    His website is inaccessible right now "due to maintenance".

    Cheers,Martin.
