    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

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

        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.

            I love it Tom! I always love to see some base metal popping through silver finish

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

              Zinc stinks!
