That is very nice Ronnie.
Could we see close ups of the markings on the reverse upper links and the blade, please.
at first sight it looks promising, but like Gastvrijheid i would like to see the RZM and NSKK markings on the links.
What disturbs me a bit is the total loss of any wear, has the chain been replated?
This type should show loss of plating and wear on the inside of the connector links and horseshoe link holes and inside top clip.
I cant find any of them, could be the pictures?
The 1st photo when magnified seems to show plate loss but Beneath the present coating. I would have to agree and say that this chain was replated at one time. I would have to also wonder why it was not first stripped before refinishing. Unusual!

Hi Ger, here is one that dosent seem to worn, i have borrowed the pictures from the Ruptured Duck site, do you think mine has been "replated" there seems to be some "lifted plating on this one on the back of the chain?
thanks for the comments
Hi Ronnie, this type chrom easily flakes, this is well visible on the Rupered chain, especially around the horseshoe ( second link below next to scabbard and the upper links as well.
What also strikes is the fact that the surface of the Duck chain is totally smooth, as it should be.
Looking at your upper links it looks like if there is some residu beneath the surface, that can be an indicater for a re-plating.
There has to be kept in mind that wrong angle in combination with light and surface wear can give strange effects on pictures.
You can see the upperlink ring on the left has plate loss as it should have, but if you look to the top link on the right it seems to have plating with residu beneath, that doesnt look right to me.
I cant be to sure about my opinion, as this is one of those things that needs an in hand examination.
