    Stewy beat me to it, I was trying to find one with this type of hardware and so far I am unable to.

    I am not sure about the piece myself? I have only 4 of them. I have a GWL that I know is good.

    This one is a fake i'm sorry to say , I have never seen a catch like that one with that nasty "line" across the obverse rifle butt. Plus for a hollow it looks "dumpy"!! Leon

    Hi Guys

    I agree with what Stewy has written...The first is a fake and the second is an original.

    The first example is a fake considered by some to have originated out of the U.K. some years back. Re-enactor sites used to sell it and hardware did vary.

    The second one is an original and is referred to as a Frank & Reif Design. It closely matches the F&R marked solids with the obverse details being virtually the same.
    The reverse does differ as the one posted by "humble collector" is a flat back example and the maker marked F&R has a slight semi hollow reverse.

    An interesting side note of the maker marked examples is the mis-spelling of the name F(r)ank with the maker mark spelled on the Infanterie Sturmabzeichen as FANK & REIF, Stuttgart.

    Here is my bronze maker marked example to compare.

    Best Regards, fischer
