    Very nice! The zinc GWL U-Boat badge appears in German vet groupings and is seen in period photographs so was certainly an official award piece of the KM. Your badge was most likely worn by a U-Boat sailor. It has the perfect "worn yet good condition" look.

    No problem with it for me, an original badge despite this maker being one of the most faked. This one has all the features I would associate with an original.

    Looks like the left side of the makers mark is less deeply imprinted.

    Thank you fellas! I am rather fond of the piece. I have a Schwerin, but pretty certain its not an original. I love the KM Badges !!!

    GWL badges are Very high quality-I consider them better than Schwerin's by far. They are one of the very few makers that have an actual Good looking eagle on them. This one has lost abit of it's gilding, but still a good bit left! Very nice original badge.

    A lovely award HC. I love GWL awards also ,they have something a bit special about them in my eyes and I love their cast in hinge and catch assembly. Leon.
