U-Boots Kriegsabzeichen - Schwerin

Article about: Not much more to add but the photos are good ones for reference. If you compare the above images to those of an original Schwerin badge the differences will slap you in the face!

    Default U-Boots Kriegsabzeichen - Schwerin

    Hi all,

    Have never purchased any German naval awards before, but I have always wanted one. This Schwerin U-Boots Kriegsabzeichen has got me interested. I have compared the back setup with other Schwerin and it looks like a genuine tombak to me.

    What is your opinion?

    Thanks
    Jonas

    Looks like a casting to me too.

    There is clear damage to the eagles chest.

    But I don't like all roughness to it.

    Cheers, Ade.

    This award appears to be a replica in my opinion, it just lacks sharpness overall. Personally, I would not buy it.

    It look's as if the clasp and catch were recently applied as well to my eyes . There seems to still be residue left from the flux paste from brazing or silver solder which should have wore off many years ago.

    100% repro, and not a very good one at that.........!

    Look at the eagles wings - they are not
    level across the top.

    I have to concur-a poorly made fake. William
