    It also has a strange pin. I have not seen one like this on a full sized badge before.

    Very nice. As you say the pin is unusual, but completely original. Congrats, Stewy

    Very interesting! The pin and maker mark are intriguing indeed. The adler head looks familiar to me, I will have to research it.

    The adler, indeed, the whole badge is identical to the other Gablonz maker as yet as unknown 'AS in Triangle', that has a near identical logo as 'M.K', that is thought to stand for 'Metall und Kunstoff' or Metal and plastic, and likewise was most likely a member of the Gablonz conglomerate AGMuK. The pin is interesting as it appears to be made of the same wire used on lapel minatures with the spiral scored pin that was designed to anchor it into the material. I guess this could be a sign of making good shortfalls when the normal pin wire was unavailable.

    Great badge btw!

    Hi Ralph

    What a great find! As Ned states, this one is from the Gablonz area and MK in Triangle was most likely a member of the A.G.M.u.K. conglomerate.
    With the Triangle incorporated into the maker mark, speculation is that MK in Triangle was not a stand alone maker but more likely a production group.

    The MK in Triangle obverse motif belongs to the Design Group Type 1 (as I have categorized the Gablonz examples)

    AS in Triangle
    M.K. 1-7 series
    MK in Triangle

    There are actually three different AS in Triangle obverse designs....the MK in Triangle matches only one of them.

    The pin has me intrigued as it appears to be the type used on the miniatures.
    In looking at the scoring on the badge reverse where the tensioneer foot comes in contact, it would appear the pin is original to the badge.

    Can you take a couple more pics of the shepherds hook - open and closed, especially where it hits the crimping lip of the hinge when convenient?

    Thanks for showing this one Ralph!

    Best Regards, fischer
