    Default My new IAB

    This arrived in the mail this past Friday. It is by no means an extraordinary piece, but I like it very much just the same.

    No comments? I acquired it from a well known dealer, so I confident that it is real.

    Looks nice! Can you take some more photos looking at it directly @90degrees?

    I don't entirely understand what you mean. Could you maybe send me a similar picture in PM so I can replicate it? I'll take additional pictures once I return home from work!

    Not to derail my thread... but what is the significance of your avatar? I saw someone driving on the NY State Thruway that had your fish avatar as a bumpersticker... Was it you?!

    By 90degrees I mean facing directly down onto the obverse and reverse. That way we can see the detail exactly as it is. Taking the shot from a low angle distorts the image. Theres every chance I might be able to work out the manufacturer if you have some nice, detailed face-on shots ( I have a good reference book)

    Regarding the avatar, it's the symbol of the 9th U-Boat flotilla. I feel it combines my love of Scuba diving and military history plus it's of german origin and i'm of 1/2 German descent also so to me it's a no brainer.

    Ah, ok! Sorry, I over-complicated your description... I have a new mini tri-pod. I'll do my best to use it to get the pictures you require. It would be very nice to get this badge's maker identified.

    So was that you driving south of Albany, NY?
