Late 57er DKiG.....................
Just picked this up from a collector friend (virtually free !).....I think a St u L made DKiG with copper starburst, open hinge/third style pin, large open rivets, large "C" catch, so a late piece......but with enamelled ring ? not painted (usually found with painted red ring after 68' and usually showing some "bleeding")....another on the cusp of changeover piece from around around 1968.
Lots of scratches around the EK, possibly indicating possible Swastika removed piece ? (St u L made pieces of there range on special order with a Swastika).
Prost ! Steve.
