    I'm not sure that is a Rettenmaier. The stamp is very heavy (compare to the stamp on my example. The 16's have a typical S&L frame.

    Check out the difference in the dates too

    Thanks Nick! So you're saying the cross is original, but someone just randomly marked it '16' to "increase it's value"?

    Yes the cross is fine, it's just not a 16
