Default Observer Case 2 For Review

Hi All,


I'd appreciate comments on this case. Opinions on which specific Observer Badges fit without issue, and which the case was intended to house.


Thanks Much,
Mark

Good to know it's for a Deumer. I want the prospective buyer aware of whether or not his badge will fit, and is the proper case.


Regards,
MM

As I understand it, depending on the height of the insert the case could take an early thin Deumer or the later 2nd pattern Observer.

Hi Gary,


I bet you have one of each badge by now, so the case will work perfectly for you!

Looks like the deeper case for the thicker badge. Wouldn't put a D1 Obs in it...

This is somewhat embarrassing, but while rummaging through the vault, I think I found the unmarked Deumer that goes with this case. Pictures soon to follow.

We should all be so lucky to have such problems...…"Oh look I just found an early unmarked Deumer in a drawer! Where did it come from?"

Gary B

P.S. I need to come over and shake that safe out of yours!!

I believe you are backwards on the case. It's for a D2. The height of the bottom portion is clearly larger than a typical D1 Obs case.


Clearly the bottom half of this case is not as high as Mark's.
