    Looks like it's another 'Schickle Design' Mine Sweeper in zinc to me. The round wire catch may be a variant, I'm not familiar with it tbh. The greenish residue is probably the oxidised remains of a copper base coat applied for allowing better adherence of the top finish. Better wait for Martin, Norm's or Jody's better knowledge on these points though.

    I agree with Ned, a weathered Schickle-attributed Minesweeper but in Tombak, likely MC# 2.7.3. Can you show the catch to see if it's the round-topped stamped sheet metal type shown here?

    Best regards,

    Hi, a nice award by Schickle as Ned has said and in the used/aged condition that I personally like. Leon.
