    Default Original KVK 1 screwback maker?

    Hey all,
    I have the pleasure to purchase this original KVK 1 screwback. Looks to have retained 70% or so of its finish. I just can't seem to find a reference to this one. Was wondering if anyone could tell the maker, at the time I am not sure of the marking on the back. Open to all thoughts in opinions. Thanks all!

    Seriously?

    I can see where it's met someone with a can of grey spray paint.......



    Apart from that it's a good L/18 B.H. Mayer KVK.

    Thanks for the marker Adrian. I am incorrect on my assumption that late war KVK 1 were painted? Do you think this was re-painted post war? Thanks again Adrian.

    OUCH!!!! this hurts! I spent 200 dollars on this thinknig it was original paint. I know, I know, I should have posted it before buying it; but I was starting to feel like a burden. Others have been upset on my prior post. I searched for hours and found nothing wrong with it, pin and all. Anyway the paint could just be misleading? Maybe its due to the Iphone potographs? We all know how bad they can turn out, wishful thinking? Sorry, and thank for your time.

    These were silver plated/frosted - I thought it had no finish at all and was
    wondering why you mentioned 70% remaining, when I would have
    said 0%. If it really is painted, send it back.........!
    Regards,


    Steve.

    I haven't either, Nick. That, alone-aside even from the ghastly painting-would have made me step away.

    Rookie mistake on my part. Honestly can't tell if it's paint or just the original metal. I thought these were coated in paint. However, the color did confuse me. If I was to strip the paint would it destroy it futher?

    As Steve said earlier, these KVK-1's were beautifully silver frosted. This one almost has the appearance of having been in a fire. If they were ever painted, I've never seen one. Of course, then again, I have no clue as to what to make of that Pin on this one either. For $200 bucks, I'd certainly be returning it!

    The only time you see grey KVK1s is when the silver finish has been absorbed by the zinc base metal. KVKs were never finished in grey paint or wash, the first class medals were always silver and the second class has a bronzed finish - never grey.
