Hi Paul, and welcome to the forum!
I have edited your original post, added the pics for you and moved it here.
A nice original badge. Very cheap.
If that's on offer for £100 I suggest you take it. A good original for a very very good price.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
yea it is very sheap, take it..
For me it's a fake,sorry. F Oth U-boot awards had a depressed makers mark,not a raised one. Also i've seen these horizontal pins with the circle to the bottom of the award before. Hinge isn't great either,not what i'd expect from Orth. Stewy
Looks fine to me there is one on collectors guild like it.
I have seeing alot of this badges whit raised f.o, I actualy don't think I have seen a orginal whit stamped f.o
I realy belive this is a good one.
I don't see any problems with this badge either. Fake F.O badges tend to have a flaw on the 'O' of the maker mark.
Many thanks to those who contributed to my recent enquiry. It is reassuring to know that there are people willing to help and advise, looking forward to using this site more often, best regards Paul Lashmar.
No problem Paul
It's the reson we are here..
