Hello Chubbs,

That looks like a good A.D. Schwerdt or Adolf Scholze PAB. Would be nice to see the catch but if in good shape I would give a ballpark value of $150 to $175.

Best regards,
Richard

Richard,
Thanks for the reply. Attached is a photo of the catch. There is some corrosion? on the head of the eagle and the details are not very clear. Were these a nickle finish origionally?
Can they be cleaned? Should it be left alone?
Thanks again
Bill

Thanks for the catch photo. Yes indeed, that's a good one. As for cleaning, I generally leave items alone but that's your call ;~) The Restoration & Conservation Forum may offer help on best way to clean.

Best regards,
Richard

Nice original A.D. Schwerdt PAB. Put some vasoline on it for 24 hours and then wipe it off.
