Default New Pickup - Schickle IAB

Hi guys,

Wanted to show my latest addition to the IAB Division, a nice early hollow Schickle. I really prefer to worn look over minty examples, the mixture of original frosted silver finish and brass base metal gives them really nice character and I really like the patina on this one. Hope you guys like it as much as I do.

Thanks

Tom

Hi Tom,

a beautiful badge in the condition i like them the most.
Nicely worn with great character.
The Schickle IAB is probably the most common maker in tombak, non the less a quality badge with an appealing design.

What's not to like? A good looking example Tom. Plus, it's not zinc!
