    Is it tombak? Please take a look and let me know.

    The tool marking on the top of the pin and the typical catch compared to the round wire Schickle examples make me pretty certain that this is indeed a hollow buntmetall (1.12.2.) GAB by Mayer.

    Hi Johnny, I've answered your p.m. regarding this.For everyone else, tombak and buntmetall are basically the same, a brass alloy made up of copper and zinc, or bronze alloy made up of copper and tin. Tombak is an alloy with at least a 67% copper content.

    Regards, Ned.
