  1. Hello As Stewy stated, this one is a fake. It is referred to as the UK fake (this one purportedly first showed up in the UK) and can be found on re-enactor sites. Here is one I have for comparison....the leaf/vein patterns are a match.
  2. Hi BMB I agree with the others; you have a nice hollow "Egghead" example. To date, the Egghead is the only example found with the teardrop shaped hinge plate in use. The variant the Hans N shows is the rarer of the two hollow Eggheads having the smaller block hinge hardware. Here is one I have to compare. Best Regards, fischer
  3. As stated, an interesting badge...The value is in the artistic lure of the piece as direct wartime lineage is impossible to prove. Best Regards, fischer
  4. I can only echo what has been stated...a very interesting piece and visually appealing. As you state, provenance will be difficult to prove. Cheers, fischer
  5. As we are discussing crimped in hardware BSW examples, I thought I would show the other crimped variant. This one is referred the BSW smooth crimped-in ISA Best Regards, fischer
  6. Hello Thanks Bart! I was fortunate to get two of these box sets when this BSW horde find appeared on the collector market. As you can see, I left one cloud box set fully intact with the brownish tissue paper still covering the ISA...just as it was when it left the factory. As my willpower is not that strong, I unwrapped the second one... Here is a better scan of the my waffle crimped BSW example. Note the late war chrome-silver type coating was not very durable and with time, the zinc base is showing through. Best Regards, fischer
  7. Nice one with a great bronze finish... This one is an unmarked example, correct?
  8. Nice example Mate...this is the BSW variant that is usually found with the so-called cloud boxes.
  9. Very nice Stewy mate! I am fond of the badges with unusual hardware. Best Regards, fischer
  10. Nice Mate...as you state, tough to find. Congrats on this new addition...
  11. Hi Mate Glad to see you got a scanner; I look forward to you getting it squared away and seeing all your examples in HD. The obverse looks spot on...I'm guessing the grey balance got out of whack somehow on the reverse as Sven mentioned. Cheers, fischer
  12. Hello Alberto A very nice ISA, congrats on adding this one! In regards to attribution, Petz & Lorenz has been suggested as the manufacturer of this rare example but solid proof has yet to be discovered. Best Regards, fischer
  13. Hi Robert I agree with all the others...it is a bad one referred to as the "UK Fake". I have a collected some of the fake examples along with originals and here is one I have to compare. Best Regards, fischer
  14. I also think it's a very nice addition...congrats on adding this Kevin! Best Regards, fischer
