    It lacks detail

    Compared to my original it does lack detail around the wreath and other areas. I defer to others with more experience. NH

    Hello Casey,
    your Krim shield is a genuine one made by an unknown maker.
    I quite like it and would happily add it to my collection.

    Reported to be unknown maker 3.12 in the Krim classification catalogue in my opinion.

    If I get chance I will try to find some pictures of it for you to compare.

    All the best
    Doug

    Just to be clear, the example I posted for comparison was identified here as L/59 Alois Rettenmeier. I would like to see photos of your example Doug. NH

    Doug's right, it's a genuine 3.12 (unknown maker).

    That identification is also correct, a nice example by Rettenmaier.

    Here is a good comparison to the one that started the thread. Taken from my files...not my shield.
