    An honest semi hollow 'Daisy' type 'B' by an unknown maker, although most likely Schauerte & Hohfeld due to the many similarities; but the evidence is still not concrete. It appears the catch has been re soldered at sometime, but for 100 bucks I wouldn't let that concern me too much. Nice score.

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned. Typically I don't make spontaneous buys but I had a pretty good feeling about it after comparing it to authentic examples online. My reservation was the catch but I can live with it.

    A nice pick up for $100.
    Unfortunately, the catch issue will make it a little tougher to sell in the future. If you like, you can see what the original catch should look like here.

    These are heavily faked, and to a very high degree that regularly fools new collectors and dealers alike, so you did well to pick a good 'un. You can't beat doing your homework carefully when dealing with these badges!

    So just to follow-up... In your opinion is the catch original and re-soldered or a non-original replacement? In either case, does it appear to be a period repair? It's hard to make out in the photo I took but there is a circular base to at the catch which looks original to the piece. Thanks for your feedback!

    If you take a look at the link I posted, you will see that there should be a flat wire catch with catch plate. Since yours has a round wire catch, I would say it is a replacement. I can not tell you if it a wartime replacement or not but, the quality of the repair would indicate to me that it is likely not.

    Hang fire dude. The type 'B' in silver is found with a roundwire catch more often than the flatwire type, that was nearly always seen on the bronze grade type 'B', but both types are acceptable as they had to use what they had in stock at the time during the latter stages of the war.

    I believe the entire catch on your example is the original one, although it is a bit distorted. I think the catch and base (or possibly just the catch, it's hard to tell on the pic), came away from the badge but were not lost and it was re soldered on.

    Backwards? Not necessarily, as 'Daisy' badges are known to have had the catches soldered on opening both left and right on each of the type 'A' and 'B' awards, it seems this was of little concern.

    In essence i'm saying a good type 'B' badge with original catch re soldered, that is my opinion, although others are free to disagree.

    Regards, Ned.
