It's a Panzer for me. Kriegsmarine were a dark blue but you should be able to see the difference. Either way it's a rare find, congratulations!
Looking at it under different lighting conditions may help too.
Looking for LDO marked EK2s and items relating to U-406.....
Very nice original either way. It is often tricky to determine the colour of these. I would lean towards Pz black too.
Thanks too both Adrians for your comments , it's not cheap , but if it is a Kreigs then it's expensive .
These have never been cheap. Even 30 years ago when I bought mine.......
Here is one of my Kreigs on a black T-shirt , which i think shows it being dark blue & comparing it too the one at the start of this thread , i think it does look black after all . What do you now reckon seeing the two ?
I would like one now! But yes, they are not cheap...
