Default Any thoughts about this overexposed Hilfskreuzer?

I don't understand why dealers put this kind of photos on their website. Anyway, can the people who know tell me if this might be a good Schwerin Hilfskreuzer? Many thanks!

A nice original badge.
The reason why they do it is because they want the badge to look as mint as possible even though it is not. It is a trick that I have seen several dealers do.
