    Hello Jonas,
    Going by the gold pin and hinge pin, I would say it is a gold variant with the finish missing. May have been cleaned which would give the medal this appearance.

    It's silver, as the remaining obverse finish shows. The pin and hinge pin are tombak, thus giving the gold appearance and are typical of Schmidthausser's production badges. Photograph it on a dark background, then the good amount of remaining finish will be obvious.

    Regards, Ned.

    An odd badge, for sure! The pin and hinge rod are obviously gold plated, but the rest of the badge exhibits absolutely no trace remains of the gold finish! It is one of the most total absorptions of the finish that I have yet to see on these awards! Interesting!

    There's nothing odd about it at all. This is how they left the factory. The pin and hinge are just pure tombak, nothing else. There is little or no absorption, in fact the majority of the silver finish is left as I mentioned previously. The poor background choice is causing an illusion, if he photographs it on a black background I'm certain all will become obvious.

    Regards, Ned.

    Sounds like a plan. I think you'll find it's in remarkably good condition with much of it's finish left, it's also a rare badge. Let's wait and see.
