    If you said these came from your grandad ,if i remember correctly, then it stands a good chance. John Brandon makes a good point, these are made very accurately nowadays . Here's some images of mine. Sorry for the blurry pics, I'm using the camera on my iPad.
    I'll try to get better pics on another camera later.

    It's not an easy call, but I am thinking this is a Steinhauer & Lück Type A Micro 800. I like the hand filing on the frosted beading and the construction looks good to me. The lower beading shows the die flaws that one would expect to see and the long hooked "1" in the 1939 Obverse date is as it should be. My eyes aren't as sharp as they once were, but the number of beading on the rims look consistent also. I do Not, however, like the 935 suspension ring.

    I wouldn't get hung up on this. No matter who it came from, memories fade.
    No one is doubting where it came from, but the item (if I'm correct) has been put on the forum for opinions?
    With such a high end piece, there aren't many people who are an authority on RK's (I count myself as having little knowledge, I have seen some that have fooled even the wisest)
    But, as with everything, you're judging the item, not the story.
    Hope that makes sense

    Bronk, My mistake, your uncle. If you got them as a vet bring back I would feel better about the acquisition . As said, however, it makes originality not completely certain and can be trivial at best. Provenance is always good, though.
    Wolfeknives, I will take better images on another camera later. iPads suck! They overrated junk.

    Please , an item such as this can cost £6 -7,000 plus so if you don't know anyhting about them don't give an opinion someone might just buy it on the back of your " knowledge " or lack of !!

    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader
