  4. Penol?

    Good try, but no.
  6. Any rules or restrictions? (i.e. can I use google?)

  7. Looks like a Ripet. Kind of like a Ripet Popular, but still several distinct differences. However, the button design does look very similar to Ripet, so maybe it is just a different model?

  8. Going to guess National "Controller"

  10. Technically, that's a Penol... I hope that's not the right answer!

    I thought a Penol was a Benco not the other way around.

    I will guess.....Kosca.
  12. a vintage Delta?

    Lots of great answers showing me that members are really doing their homework!
    First clue: Delta, Kosca, Penol, Benco, Ripet are all from the correct continent.
  14. Let me try again with at least the right continent.
    How about Goldfink?
  15. How about a Conway Stewart?

    Second hint: Soennecken, we're in the right country
