Before April 1940 it was possible to get a replacement badge with the original serial number.

The weirdest thing is that this is a M1/78 Paulmann & Crone with a "B" designation. In the more than 10 years a study this type of award, I never came across such an example. In my article written in 2015 I claimed that no M1/ 78 badge with "B" designation existed. It is also strange that the position of the RZM mark and "Ges. Gesch. " mark is different from the normal M1/78's. But in general the badge looks very believable.
