    Good point !!!

    I looked to fast !!, I'm pretty sure the maker mark also was used on ww2 spades , and I saw the folded ears, so I was too fast in my judgement

    Do you have pictures of the backside of the shovel as well ??

    Hello,
    The set is postwar
    The shovel is a postwar Idealspaten.
    Sometimes one can find fake markings stamped to this very kind of shovel.

    giveaways : ears folded on the wrong side of the blade and NO welding spots...
    Thanks

    Great point and sharp eye the ears are in the front and I now don't see any weld marks. Somewhere I did see the stickman proof on a 1952 dated BW shovel. timothy
