    Purchased this along with some wound badges last night from a granddaughter of a WWII vet. She said that he brought them home from Germany after the war. Does this one look okay?

    I think it's okay listed as an unknown maker, but I believe Rettenmeier is now linked. Stewy

    Looks like a rather late 'Smirker' GAB that's now been confirmed as the work of Alois Rettenmaier. The hardware and hand filing on the back look good.

    A nice looking GAB, I to love the look of the hand finish on this one. Leon.
