    Both look good originals, though I had not seen this type with the blank eagle reverse before. These have also been posted by someone seeking an opinion on another forum.

    My Pith Shields for comparison, note the non-blank eagle reverse.

    Hi Glenn,

    Sorry, but I think your shields are copies, with the flawed head to the eagle and the pitted surface to the fronts, which should be pebbled. Also, the flimsy soft soldering on the brass mounting pins.

    The thread starter shields are unusual, except by this one maker, RK, according to a mate who has dozens of original Heer shields.

    They were bought off Kai Winkler who I would have thought would have an eye for such things?

    Did Assmann make any of those shields?
    Who are the maker?

    I know on another forum where shields where posted, one member stated that he has the same one but that these shields are a bit heavier that the others?
