    Hi, looks like they may well have both been repaired, but I would be more concerned that it looks as though the award was de-Nazified and has had a swastika re-attached. That vertical line below the Adlers claw looks like a cut to me? Leon.

    It's an unmarked 2nd pattern Juncker (J2) in tombak without the punch hole near the gun base pedastal. A good spot by Leon on the suspect swastika, but in this case it's a fairly common sight on these early Junckers and is not a problem, here's the detail of another the same.

    The reverse hardware looks O.K. if a bit beaten up. The catch should be round wire tombak which was originally 'C' shaped, I can't quite see it clearly, but I think it's also O.K. just distorted.
