Here are some marine observer badge variations to look at. Top left is a well used badge by Hugo Schaper of Berlin. Originally a standard pin fixing it has been ' field altered ' to a double screw disc fixing. Next to that is another screw fixing badge in some sort of bunt metall (this badge is in Niemanns 2nd ref.book) has a scratch engraving on reverse ' CZECH ,FahnzS. it too started life as a pin back but now sports a later oval TR plate and screw. Third is a nice hollow two piece Maybauer in 900 silver,marine badges are rare in two piece form, and of course the half-size piece in 935 silver.

Nice double-screw back badge. The meybauer is fantastic as well. The D-S configuration is pretty unusual and hard to find. Only one I ever had was an Army Observer. Here's an image just to compare the arrangements on the back. Your's might be missing a backing plate???
