    Hi, I used to have one of these "small w" Wursters and the reverse was nicely bubbled just like yours and took on a slightly "grubby" looking hue to it, again, like the reverse of yours. I am not sure about the front of your award though, it does appear to be much brighter in appearance than the reverse, unless that is just a lighting issue. Leon.

    If that is the case, why do I have to continually edit the title of your threads here?

    Hi Jan,

    This is the last type of GAB that Wurster made ( the sheet metal hinge is the main clue) and indeed does have a Brennlack finish compared to the earlier small block hinged massive tombak and zinc badges that had a brighter, silver plated coating. The finish looks original to me, it's a little subdued to the earlier plated type and that may cause some to think it's been refinished, but in my opinion it's not, although it may have been cleaned.

    Regards, Ned.
