    Hi Guys,
    After your opinion again on a stamper. This one i'm thinking fake, although it is much better quality than normal fakes. For once they look to have got the handle right (if it is a fake). The thing i don't like about it is the little arrow stamped into the side. Of the many originals i own, only one has this arrow, but i have also seen a lot of fakes with this type of arrow as well. Brass also deters me a little as well but i do have a few original brass ones so not 100% sure. Im waiting on more pictures so unfortunately this is currently all i have at the moment!

    p.s. the writing on the base reads: "Der Bürgermeister als Polizeibehörde in Porz a. Rhein"

    Cheers

    I'd prefer to see some more images (any chance..? natural light if possible...)

    ...not sure either way on this one at the moment...have handled many period examples...and reproduction / fantasy pieces too...this one has some good elements...and some I might not feel so comfortable with...

    The center line/arrow would be to orient the stamp properly.

    I have doubts on it's originality. For one, the image looks
    reversed - it's engraved Into the brass. If ink were to be
    used on this, the background would be printed.
    This style of disc is normally seen on
    embossing presses.

    This is why I've shied away from this type of thing
    for 40 years.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Could this be a wax seal rather than an ink stamp?

    Ive asked for more photos, hopefully they arrive soon!

    Its definitely designed as a wax stamp. and after checking my other stampers, the eagles head is pointing the right way. Again this doesn't prove its real, but sometimes these things are missed on fakes. the lettering is quite clear s well which is good, but i think the pictures will really help tell the full story!!

    Personally, I like it. The detailing is excellent as is the construction. It would seem odd to put the considerable time and expense into making it for an item that is not all that highly valuable. I can see no reason to doubt this item's authenticity.
