    It looks like a B.H. Mayer/Schickle to me John.
    You can compare with my example here.
    B.H. Mayer/O. Schickle "Attributed" Hollow Tombak with Wrap Around Hinge and Flat Wire Catch.
    Or wait for fischer to give you his opinion.

    Hi Jonno,

    Sorry, I'm not fischer, but I agree it's a fake. The punched holes in the sling are too round compared to an original badge in my opinion. This has always been a known "tell" on the bogus Schickle (They're no longer classified as B. H. Mayer) IAB's.

    Original.

    Hi John

    I agree with the others here, this one is a fake.

    By itself, it does look like an original and this one has fooled many.
    When compared next to a known original, incorrect details are distinctly visible.

    Besides the stock details already mentioned, here are a few more;

    Head sculpt
    Breast feathers
    Material between swazy and k98
    Kar98k details
    Ribbon bow details
    Acorn details

    Best Regards, fischer

    Thank Fisher for the detailed synopsis, funny thing is......I thought it was, the first time I held it, but then I had doubts, but I should always remember.....the first reaction is usually the right reaction 😆🔫😍
