    Hi Stephano

    To me, from the pictures, it looks like a good early Schwerin Ubootskriegabzeichen with good head detail, round catch and maker marked (a lot of these are not marked). However there is significant wear to gilding (toned tombac showing through in spots) so not in top condition. I'm much more of a buyer than a seller really so I couldnt venture a value but you can get a good idea of dealer retail value (which isnt exactly what you can expect) from sites like Weitze or eMedals which both currently have a number of these for sale

    Regards

    JC

    Hi Stefano, I agree with JC, an original badge. It's not a minty example but not all collectors want mint and like a badge with some wear and showing some age. I would guess a rough price of around €350-€450.
    Best Regards,
    Adrian.
