As you state, this one is a nice S.H.u.Co. Design hollow with a steel alloy base and it's a (5) Vein example.
An interesting variant due to it's construction material but not too difficult to track down and minty examples can still be found.
There are both (4) & (5) Vein steel hollows and the difference is found in the 1R wreath leaf position.

A nice example you have added to your collection!
Not all of my items are "minty",
Here is my ShuCo hollow that I posted previously.

Thanks fischer, that explanation clears that question up for me. Great information.
Great badge Ralph, thanks for showing the link.
