Default Schnellboot 1st pattern-for review

I would like to get your opinion about originality of this Schnellbootabz. 1st pattern badge.
It "looks" like good Schwerin production. Hinge, pin, catch and top hook are not magnetic. Little scratch in the bottom of the obverse is visible.
What puzzles me with this piece are not symmetrical wings of the eagle. Is it the flow due to the production or is it a "Red Flag" for the badge?
Thank you in advance for your comments.

Very nice original! I agree the left wing is quite unusual but the rest is perfectly textbook.

The only red flag i can see is that the badge is cleaned.
The finish looks weird. You can still see residue on the deeper parts.
Beside that it’s a fine original badge.

It's a nice original tombak Schwerin.

No red flags here.

Cheers,Martin.
