Good Evening / Morning
I have yet another question....I certainly appreciate the knowledge that is out in the forum!
I have found a Bavarian Air Gunner Badge in 800 Silver by Karl Pollath. (Please forgive the lack of umlaut)
However on a trip to Kaiser's Bunker, he has this to say:
1. "Karl Pöllath" which are exceptionally high quality; and
2. "Carl Poellath" which tend to be a somewhat lower quality and:
3. 'The centers of Karl Pöllath examples are typically marked with a tiny but clear "KARLPÖLLATH SCHROBENHAUSEN SILBER" in three lines'.
This worries me.
While I believe (the books I ordered are obviously on a slow boat from Greenland - I would have said China, but they would probably arrive sooner - ordered from Amazon and they should arrive by the end of the month...) the obverse looks good IMHO, I am concerned about two things (Perhaps it should be more?)
1.The vent hole on the reverse. To me, this does not look to be high quality and,
2. It has '800' instead of 'Silber'.
Any, and all input would be gratefully received.
It does come with a Helmut Weitze, COA - though it's not from his site.
Note: POR..sounds just a tad expensive...
