    If you ask me - I like it, it has a nice eagle, a nice swaz and the wreath looks very even.

    Have you been offered this from the same seller who has the Tellermutzen for sale?

    Note the propeller is also missing from the badge above, compare to the originals on Gordon's site.

    Hello Partisan,

    Not an expert so wait for more knowledgeable people to comment but IMO...

    I have seen this design before (always without propeller); usually with thin horizontal needle pin (not this pin/hinge set-up as either solid back or hollow back but ALWAYS UNMARKED. In my opinion its one of the sub badges' variants with the better designed eagles (with Juncker, early (long neck) Schwerin, 5 feather variant etc) but this design is definitly not a Schwerin design so its either a repro or at best it could even be an original early specimen of this variant that was "enhanced" with a desirable maker mark to make it more credible/valuable. Either way not something you would want for your collection. Lots of original Schwerin badges marked & unmarked for sale on various sites (eg: Weitze, emedals etc) and discussed on various forums and reference books. If I were you I would do some research and comparare designs first before buying

    Regards

    JC
