    No expert on these by any means but that "northeast/southwest" sword look rather deformed!...
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Looks like a genuine "Missing Log" type by an unknown maker. The die gradually degraded over time and the log on the bottom of the right hand bunker (indicated below) became less and less prominent until it practically disappeared. Some versions also show the top of the number '9' missing completely or on it's way there. The pin positons look good and the badge should be magnetic (steel). I say.

    Regards, Ned.
