Post L/56 Iab

A few IAB to show off here, the first one is this fine L/56 marked IAB (Funke & Bruninghaus). There is still some silver wash on the wreath and eagle and what looks like some corrosion (zinc rot) on two small sections of the wreath, however still a fine badge in my opinion. This badge is also a super heavy weight, tipping the scales at a massive 38.6grams!

It has a nice amount of chrome finish left to the front. A good looking example of the L/56 good you are asking because there is a dangerous fake around.
