Ciao Carlo,

Very nice original with nice frosted finish remaining.

The maker is RK from Gablonz. As Nicolas says, it is commonly thought to be Rudolf Karneth, but there were other makers located in Gablonz with the initials RK, specifically Robert Kriesel, etc. Whoever the maker was, nice example.

Tom

A nice one.

Tom, I was waiting for you to call it a Karneth so you could get Bruce stirred up when he looks at this thread. Calling these Karneths is better than a cup of coffee to get his blood flowing!

Bruce, don't get upset, just messing with you, though I'm 99% sure they are made by Karneth!

Hi Carlo


One of the best looking examples I have seen


You mentioned "pillow" but "pillow crimp" IABs are a different design.

Total agreement.
The truth be told, collecting wouldn't be as much fun without you gents around to liven things up.
We're not always on the same page, but we've accepted one another just the same.
And yes, threads such as these have been known to get the ol blood flowing.
Much better than caffeine.

Happy collecting!

Hi toot


If you mean the gap between the rifle and the swastika, the gap is normal.


If you mean were the arms of the swastika ever cut out on this particular design, they were not.


Please be more specific if you feel the badge has an issue.


regards
Graeme
