    Hi Nick,

    what dose Deumer mean; is this valuable? Like a Wilheim Deumer, Ludenscheld.

    Hi Andy, it means its made by Wilhelm Deumer of Lüdenscheld. If it was marked it would have a number 3 or an L/11 stamp.

    It doesnt mean it is worth more I'm afraid!

    Wilhelm Deumer is the makers name. Deumer marked their products with either the number '3' or L/11, or in the case of your KVK, not at all.
    Deumer awards are some of the most common to be found so there is no special value attached to them.

    Well it depends what you paid for it! Deumer are a quality maker and this is a nice looking tombak KVK.
