    Hello Damian,
    This one appears to be a good Rudolph Karneth.

    Hi rbminis,
    I am quite amazed as I would have put it down as a wrong one.

    I am quite sure that all three are good. I just don't have the time to look them up right now. Be patient, fischer, Ned or Stewy will be able to help.

    Eagle is wrong for an RK, going on the pics. Catch is not Karneth style, could be a repair. Also the reverse is odd in general IMO. Stewy

    I agree with Ralph. To me it's a solid zinc Karneth 'Unpebbled' Die 1 type. Not sure if the catch is repaired, it could just be crud around it. Let's see what Fischer says about it.

    Hi Damian

    This example is an original and as Ned stated, it is a (6) vein Type or Die 1 example.

    Most collectors refer to this example as a Rudolf Karneth variant and the connection was established due to "like" attributes with other marked R.K. combat badges from the Gablonz area.

    That said, the initials "R.K." used as a maker mark is "assumed" to stand for Rudolf A. Karneth & Sohn, Gablonz but the maker Robert H. Kreisel, Gablonz - PKZ 67 is also a feasible candidate.

    To date, solid proof on who actually produced these examples has yet to surface.

    Here is one I have to compare.

    Best regards, fischer
