    This one is post war Souval made; based on the "Schinkel B" design. It sports a typical late 57 production St&L hardware with the so called large C catch and probably an open hinge block as well?

    Here is another one, although with thicker beading and an earlier hardware.

    Regards

    At least I was luckier when I bought mine, it was only 10 from a sci-fi stall - although it did look original to me!

    I've made a friend that has collected for almost 40 years that has been kind enough to take me under his wing and teach me what to look for. But it's so much to take in and really gives me a lot of respect for the people who have collected and are nice enough to share their knowledge.
    Some I've encountered are grumpy and act like you should know everything already and are quite condescending when someone asks about an item that turns out to be fake. If they don't ask, how will they know? The only stupid question it's the one you don't ask.
    Everyone starts learning somewhere.
