    From the photos supplied & going by the sloppy looking hinge block my first thoughts would be fake.
    Where's the photo showing the pin? Has the seller something to hide? What can be seen of the back
    reminds me of the typical crud seen on sites like Ioffer, etc. Better photos would of course help.

    Regards

    Better photos are required, especially of the pin...I wouldn't buy based on these photos as this is a highly faked badge...

    Guys are right, I also have such copy with same mark on back. Distinctive feature is long cannon tube, genuine badge has much shorter.

    It is definitely a fake badge. As well as the details not comparable to an original, the maker mark is also unlike anything found on an original.

    Eagle head like a dress bayonet....almost no detailing to the submarine....vague and apparently made up marking on the reverse...cast metal composition...Sorry, definitely not good. Save your money!

    Poorly cast hinge,loose and sloppy fit to the pin. Not one for me either. Leon.
