Medium "b" size, maked Hoffst?tter. I've lightened the reverse slightly as it's almost black.

Here I think that we have a fake large version marked for Aurich. It feels wrong in the hand & has various differences when compared to others. Unfortunately, I do not yet have another Aurich to compare it with.

As you can see, the pin is very crudely attached, but this could be down to it being a replacement. The centre of the starburst is not under the letter "L" as with the others.

The lettering has little or no pattern under the blue enamel, others are ribbed in some way.

Below left suspect fake, right original.

Finally, when you look at it from the side, it's as flat as a pancake. All of the originals I've see so far are gently curved.

Below left suspect fake, right original.

Indeed you will Ralf, we'll have no half measures here :P

Seriously though, I'm looking forward to seeing them, they look fine from the front.

A larger version than my Lilliput whose maker I cannot make out. Ahh Franke and Company!  Could not make it out with my loupe.

I think it's Dr. Franke & Co., Ludenscheid?
