    Hello

    I would like to see the reverse pic if you happen to come across it.
    My opinion is this one is a Staegemeir Factory product and I would stay away.

    There are details that are soft and mis-shaped and some do not lie up with known originals.
    The fire gilting looks bright and shiny but the ship area looks worn and pitted.

    Another alarm is the price...$80.00 for a Schwerin HSF. He is selling the KVK for $100.00.?
    You mention WAF, there is a HSF Scherwin that has had the swazy ground down that sold for 150 euros.

    My example is the variant with the missing bridge window but one you can use to compare some of the other details.

    Best Regards, fischer

    I completely agree with Don here, the HSF you show looks very suspicious in terms of the finish and details. There could be some artificial aging going on. There is no way an original badge would be sold for such a low price. Anyone can look the price of these up on the net and get the true value of an original easily.

    Well, I am not longer in contact with the seller since we couldn't make a deal on the KVK. I appreciate all of your help guys!
