Hi, my name is*****'m a certified appraiser and I'd be happy to help.

This would be Bavarian or German, but the text is so blurry! Can you make out any of the letters in the text beneath the lion/shield?

I think I see a CRC above the shield
Expert:  AppraiserJM replied 1 year ago.

That's what I thought too--either CRC or CRG or GRC or GRG. But none of those have hits. Does it say something beneath the shield?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Nothing that I can make out. ��

Sorry I can't figure it. I'll open to other appraisers.
