    Hi Guy,

    I bought this silver wound badge last weekend. I'm little bit confused! I saw same silver wound badge from same maker when a stamp has been placed on the left side.
    What is a difference between them? Or one of them is fake, or just a late war?
    And what do you think about the case?

    Thank you!

    It looks like a good Rucker & Sohn silver badge in original box to me.
    I would be happy with that one as it looks to be a nice early tombac piece

    All the best

    Yep, it's a good one for me but I think from these pics that it is a good quality fine zink type not tombac. See the colour of the base metal where the finish is worn. It is not at all yellow as tombac would be. Plus you can see signs if the typical bubbling under the finish so characteristic of zinc badges.

    Ruecker & Sohn badges are encountered with the maker mark off to one side as well as central under the pin.

    A nice example.

    Regards

    From what little I've seen of Rucker & Sohne wound badges in the past, all of them are solid zinc.
