Thank you for your replies and the information Gentlemen.
Fernando my friend,
I will be sure to remember Punzon in future.
It is very kind of you to add further information.
I am a little puzzled about your last two lines. Very sorry but I am a bit thick at times!
Please may I ask you to clarify your meaning here?
Apparently, the punch shows a lion with something in its right claw .....
Larraņaga gives as a source to Isidro Soler "Arcabuceros de Madrid"
Do I take it that as the lion in the above photo has something different in it's paw, that it in some way differs from what we should expect?
Thank you for your time, my friend.
