    Hello Pepe,
    I also think your badge is good. I saw it yesterday but was at work and couldn't compare it to mine. Here is my example below. I think you'll agree they are a good match. The details on yours are softer than mine, maybe due to the period of manufacture and the catch is different but overall I believe they are very close to each other.
    These are called the 'Daisy' variant. I have no idea on the maker at the moment but I'll look into it.

    Yes Adrian I agree with you, they are from the same maker. Interesting thing is lack of the details on my badge compared with yours. Even daisy is worse visible..

    anyway, thanks for your pics! cheers Pepe

    Hello Pepe,

    I agree with the others, it looks ok. The pics aren't very clear and there's some wear which could also account for the lack of detail. The semi-hollow zinc Daisy variant, has a type A & B. The main difference with Type A is that it has a die flaw running down the right outer track, which yours appears to have. Once again, I can't completely tell by the pics. Type B which is much more common than Type A, was produced to primarily correct that die flaw. Some attribute this badge to Schauerte & Höhfeld, though it's not certain.

    BR,
    James
