Fake. Schwerin never produced this design. I can't remember who did at the moment (Im not a big KM collector) but the originals of this pattern are quite scarce. You'll akso find this pattern reproduction with various other makers names as well.

An old and well known fake.
A badge of the Deumer design with a spurious Schwerin maker mark.

Cheers,Martin.
