    Hi Nick, don't worry, it is fine.

    Any makers makers number mark on the ring?

    These were made by a great many different makers. Also the silver finish to the helmet and rim can be found on some of the earlier issues only. A rough collectors guide would be:

    Type 1 = Buntmetall with quality finish

    Type 2 = Zinc with quality finish

    Type 3 = Zinc with nonexistent finish

    Some makers are:

    3
    6
    7
    11
    13
    15
    20
    30
    39
    55
    60
    65
    76
    80
    88
    93
    100
    107
    127
    L/55
    L/57

    This list is by no means complete however.


    Cheers, Ade.

    These awards hold up well. Only one of mine has zinc pest. Shame the hi-fi hasn't stood the test of time so well. Stewy S

    Hi Nick, here is mine which is made by "3". (Wilhelm Deumer, Ludenscheid)

    I bought this one for a fiver, but it was about 30 years ago.

    Also shown is a packet of issue I have in my collection.

    Cheers, Ade.
