    Hello Gentlemen,

    I have recently acquired this U-Boat badge from an old collector. I found it unique as the pin attachment is horizontal and not vertical as most are found to be. The badge is a brass material with a gold wash. The maker mark is stamped "Schwerin Berlin 68". How rare is this pin type attachment?

    My best,

    Hello Gordon,

    I do not see any resemblance of this badge to the photos you sent on the thread. This exact origonal Schwerin maker mark is posted on one of your threads. Can you be more specific as to why you dont like it?

    Thank you

    Now compare yours with this genuine, but non-Schwerin piece. Look at the areas ringed. Solid area around gun, solid areas around eagles neck, lack of propellor, and the way the saddle tanks are portrayed, in relief, as opposed to as a groove.

    It lacks the detail of the original, but no doubt that this is what it has been based on.
