Hi Tom,

Yes, I am familiar with the Staegemeir fakes. In fact I have a couple in my collection (as fakes :laugh:). I can assure you this shield is nothing like it. This shield comes from a very...

Although this shield is exactly the same as the known magnetic original, some of the small die flaws are missing from this shield. For me it is therefore hard to believe that this shield was produced...

So what do you think this shield is made of?
