I must say, this Falcon crossed the ocean twice! It was sent from Germany to US Customs and was sent back Germany. For no apparent reason. Well, the falcon crossed the ocean a second time and landed on my doorstep.

So, I have to determine what to do with this Falke. It needs some work and the metal stamping (Falke name) is very light. Some work is an understatement!

I guess in a month or so I'll have something to report.

I'm open for suggestions (kind ones, please). And yes, that's a hairline crack in the wrist.

Hmmmm, how to handle the metal work. Will a rough finish be appropriate?
