    For some reason the last two uploads were shrunk down by the system, too small to read. Not sure what the file size and dimension limits are for the forum software but I'll try again in a smaller format which hopefully will retain it's size?

    The latest version of the Classification Table from February 2, 2014. Sorry, the image quality is poor due to the file size restrictions on the uploads.

    Thank you for the update Norm.

    Sorry about the file sizing. I tried previously to get it right but for some reason it doesn't work.

    Thanks Martin (and Adrian), it's my pleasure of course.

    I just realized that back when I posted this thread in early 2012, I didn't include the "Type 6" wave pattern that was added to later versions.

    So here is the only representative of the Type 6 wave pattern, dubbed the "Juncker-style", found exclusively in zinc. The Type 6 wave pattern is stylistically intermediate between the Type 2 8-wave and the Type 5 straight-wave categories. The maker is unknown but this badge has several characteristics that are very suggestive of Juncker (even if not conclusive). Although the obverse design is different from Juncker's Tombak Minesweeper, the margins and the inner cutouts are almost the same suggesting shared trimming tooling and the reverse hardware is typical of Juncker. The eagle shows a distinctive double-breasted design.

    Both sub-types of this badge can be seen here:
    6.1 ?Juncker-style? - zinc only
