    Hello John,
    It is an original Rudolph Karneth, but pretty difficult to see if there is any real silver finish left with such small photos.

    Ralph is spot on. A zinc RK ISA. Stewy

    Thanks for the knowledgable information gents , I took a look at the makers thread and also thought it may be Rudolph karneth , thanks for confirming it is a genuine one and also the maker

    Cheers John

    Just to add another voice, I agree this is a solid zinc RK in silver.

    These also can be found with a very shiny "chrome" finish and "pebbled" and "un-pebbled" oak leaves. This of course is the "un-pebbled" type.

    As Ralph says it is hard to tell how good the finish is on this one because of the pics so you might show some better pics if you buy it. You said the price was good but don't forget that might have something to do with the level of finish remaining. My first Infanterie Sturmabzeichen was a virtually unworn Wegerhof but it had no finish remaining which is why it was cheap. Just something to consider when bartering!

    Regards

    Mark

    Good call Mark, I completely forgot the pebbled/unpebbled factor. Stewy

    The badge comes as part of a deal on a wehrpass I'm after and the seller describes it as having (much silver finish remaining) so I'm hopeing it does and will take some better pics when it arrives , I looked through a lot of threads on the IAB to try and find a similar type to this one and I remember seeing something about the un- pebbled oak leaves , also when I found the badge maker thread and noticed then it was probably this type by Rudolph karneth but thanks to all for the confirmation it's much appreciated , as I collect a general mix of German items fakes are more of a problem than they wouid be just focusing on a specific interest , but I do like to learn about all aspects of the hobby and the forum as well as your experienced opinions makes getting ripped off much less likely

    Cheers john

    Hello

    I agree with the others...a silver ISA attributed to the maker Rudolf Karneth, Gablonz.

    It is a (5) vein variant and if I had to guess, this one probably is a worn chrome silver finish that Mark mentions.
    Also, it's the un-pebbled variation with the wreath/leaf sans the stippling detail of the "pebbled" version.

    Please also note, the Karneth attribution is still only a theory as the maker Robert Kreisel, Gablonz is also a possibility, etc.

    Best Regards, fischer

    Hi fischer , thanks for the added information on the badge , as you say the finish is worn but the badge is original , I'm yet to do the deal and the guy also has this badge available the finish and detail is better than the first shown but I'm not sure if its original , it's a hollow backed version with a different catch set up , here are a couple of pics.
