Not keen - the KSLI looks cast.

It looks strange to me as well!
The photo is not good here the KSLI isnít cast I just checked the sheared edge with scope, but the whole thing looks dull detail and has a strange slider?

The slider has just been clipped by the wearer. I have some badges that have been done the same. I think the badge is ok, just not a typical 'crisp' example.

It looks a bit big for a cap if it has to be transported in a wagon.

Must be a genuine WWII example if a German soldier took it as a souvenir!
