Yes, its KM. That makes it scarce, but something else makes it rare - the maker.

It's by Maedicke. Maedicke shields typically have four tabs on the edge. Scarce enough in its own right especially in good condition.

 

This one however, is an early striking with four prongs on the reverse rather than tabs on the edge. According to one of the leading Shield experts, only a handful  are known in collections..
