these are non-magnetic, correctly thin and the 'colors' is rounded not pointed-bottom like a heer. also, there's a gilt-like paint in the eagle recesses. (I include a R.K.'-made heer for comparison. these other shields are unmarked.)

anyhow, this bird looks pretty funky to my inexpert eyes. all comments welcome, and thanks.

really mm! a good km set! can you tell stylewise who made them? anyone here seen period pix showing this type?

and should these not have a border? this has a very shallow lip round the outer edge...

also, looks like the tri color shield's red field was 'restored' with some glossy ... fingernail polish (?). is it worth getting out the acetone and making it gone?

cheers for the great news!
