    I guess if someone put them away at the end of the war and they remained unplayed with over the following 50 or 60 years until discovered and rehomed with a collector then the original finish will always shine through. Obviously it depends on the storage being right, no damp etc. Mine were left behind in the house where the German who owned them had been billeted. The house changes hands in the 60's and the sellers told the new buyers that the medals went with the house. Luckily for me the new owners were going on holiday in the 80's and needed a bit more holiday money. They sold them to me and I have them still in the boxes and get them out every now and again. They cost me 8 a piece so I always smile when I see them.

    I think the Mayers have the flat top head look to them also.

    Who is then the maker of the round head eagles, such as those shown by Damien?

    The first one appears to be a first pattern Juncker, the second appears to be a second pattern Deumer.

    Hi Ralph,

    I agree with the first one being a Juncker type 1, but are you sure about the second one being a Deumer? To my eyes it's an example by Eugen Schmidhausler, but I'm still learning on these.

    Regards, Ned.

    I believe you are correct Ned.
    The 1 in the date gives it away. I was looking too much at the head and beard.
