    Hi guys, ive got this spange here and i didn't pay anything for it because i wasn't confident with it, but alas, its now in my possession. In checking the data base, it doesnt match anything in there, and ive heard if here is a sizable difference in wing "gap" then we have a concern. Also, the prongs arent individually affixed (4), rather they are affixed from the center and bent up from the right and left. I know the ribbon is wrong btw.



    Anyhow im looking for more input to confirm it is bad or in a strike of luck, that it is potentially good.

    No need for "alas" methinks. It looks like a good unmarked L/59 in zinc by Alois Rettenmaier to me. Best wait for other opinions, but I like it.
