      Appreciate that Jordan does this mean that this is a rare variant?

        Not a rare variant but the more uncommon set up from this maker.

            Hi Juan,

            Its an original, but its a Rettenmaier, not a half-moon IMO.

            If it doesn't have a hinge and catch, I'm not interested......well, maybe a little

                Juan, Rettenmaiers aren't rare, they can be found and typically in pretty good condition. This one is nice because it is a ground dug example and lends credibility to them being wartime productions which some people have doubted in the past due to their flatback nature and often pristine condition.

                  Hi Tom once again I appreciate your answer and this is great news because this item as you say has proved that these insignias were produced wartime which in a way has got a historical relevance
