Greetings

I have come accross the WW1 Maybaour U-boat badge and have posted a picture of the reverse.

I can post more pictures if required but the interesting thing is the machine markings on the reverse.

I wanted to know if this was typical of these badges or unusual.

Regards

These sorts of machining striations are typical of what one would expect on a genuine Walter Schott badge. I've never before seen an original Meybauer like this.

There are enough (albeit subtle) differences between this one and known originals that I'd have some hesitation over it. The weakness of the after periscope when seen from the reverse, the flat as opposed to curved sides to the crown, the curvature of the outermost parts of the ribbon at the top of the wreath etc.

It could well be good, but Meybauer and Schott badges have been heavily reproduced so any which differ from the norm need caution.

Compare the ringed areas with this fine original which belongs to Michel.

Thanks very mutch for the responce.

It was a badge I was possibly thinking about purchasing but will leave it were it is as it is a badge not high on my wants list.

It is quite interesting that you do get these marks on the back of Maybauer Selesian eagles though.

Regards

Peter
