    Hi Nick,

    It's an unknown maker, (but probably from the Gablonz region). A solid zincer, it's known to be made also in N/S and comes in two die patterns, this one being the type II. The roundwire catch is typical, and flat wire examples are also common.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi Nick, a nice original award that has a "ball hinge" like the maker AS in tri-angle used. Leon.
