Default FOR EVALUATION: Zerstorerkriegsabzeichen "4"

Hello all,
I need your evaluation on this Zerstorerkriegsabzeichen I've been offered.
Steinhauer & Luck "4" production.
All ok?
I saw that these have a long security pin often shortened, is this the case?
I'd like to know your opinion.

Thanks
G.

Hi G.,

Looks like an old cast reproduction of the Schickle-design Destroyer with a spurious 4-marked pin added to deceive.

Certainly not a genuine S&L Destroyer.

Best regards,

It’s a reasonable cast effort but you can see the evidence of casting so it’s a fake!

Kind regards Chay
