Default Narvik Shield opinions

Hi all,

Posted this Narvik shield (salty and missing two prongs) in a FB group and got divided opinions. Mr. Kramer at Wehrmact Militaria said it was authentic and Brian Bell (not sure if he's a member here) said the details looked alright (albeit with a soft swastika and text.) Would love to get your opinions on it.

The swaz and text look a bit soft although I was told that's not necessarily a deal breaker, given these were stamped. Any help is very much appreciated

More pics...seems to look similar to some of the zinc examples in this gallery http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...2n3IrEIiRK5RH4

Maybe a type 5?

Thanks for the response Yury. I'm also not crazy about it.

Interestingly enough, this one from Stewarts military antiques seems to match the one I posted (https://stewartsmilitaryantiques.com...itary-antiques) deformed swaz and everything
