Default Opinions on Destroyer badge

Hello all, Came across this and was wondering if its original or a copy, interested in buying it and its unmarked. Any help is appreciated and these are all the photos I have.
Thanks!

Looks original to me. Is there an L/21 stamp on the main pin?

Regards
Mike

I believe you guys are correct, I believe the area circled here is the L/21 Stamp which isn't pictured and unfortunately I can't get any other photos. Although I have found another photo of an L/21 Destroyer badge on this forum which I have compared to mine, it seems there is a die flaw in the top right quarter of this badge by this maker?
Anyhow I have also purchased the Kriegsmarine Awards book from BD publishing to further help me out in the future, I thank you guys for the info
I now do believe this to be an original badge

Regards & Thanks

I also agree, original F&B zincer
Such variant as yours with this thicker catch can also be unmarked so there can be no mark on the pin as well.
Cheers,
Hubert
