Default New Assmann Observer from SOS

Hi Gents.

I'm a little behind in photos and postings, but here is one of my favorite 2020 SOS purchases...a gorgeous cased tombak Assmann Observer badge. Would appreciate any comments or observations. Hope you enjoy.

Thanks in advance.

I like this thick lacquered finish on the wreath. Good catch.

Hi Doug,

excellent assmann observer badge in pristine condition!
Case is an early example, also beautiful.

Thanks for sharing!

Very nice Assmann and great condition! The case is also great and much rarer but it's for Juncker.

Very beautiful piece! Like Alex said, the case is a much earlier (and rarer) case, not really a match for this Assmann observer.

Not to this badge, but to early Assmann yes

Nice pick up Doug, gorgeous Assmann in great condition. Nice early case too, but not necessarily correct for this later Assmann variant.


Nice to see you at the show.

Thanks for the input Alex, Giel, Jacek, and Tom, regarding the case. Matching badges with correct cases can be quite frustrating. So it sounds like I need to find an early Juncker Observer badge, or maybe an early Assmann Observer badge, to properly fit this case.

Or, maybe easier, find a more appropriate Assmann style case to match the badge that I have.

Good to see you too Tom! Thanks for showing me all the nice "goodies" that you found at Show.
