Hi Troy,

a genuine and nice Deumer para. This one surely has that 'been there' look.
Make sure to ask some additional pictures of the catch. The spots near that area might be remnants of the blue finish but can also indicate a repair. Be sure before you pull the trigger!

Thanks JC .
I took careful aim and squeezed the trigger on it so hopefully arrive sometime next week.
Unlikely it will ever be possible to identify the original recipient of the award "F. Beyer" but none the less its a badge with character.

Badge arrived yesterday and have just taken some of my own photos and a close-up of the catch.

Beauty Troy, nice worn Deumer. Certainly has the been there look, and nicely named on the reverse.
