    Exclamation 1939 spange on WWi ribbon-Opinions as there are issues

    Hello guys. I have spotted this item but prior purchasing it i would like to get some opinions. To me the ribbon and spange seem original but there is a mark on the reverse which makes me think that it was initially attached to an EKI and at some time someone converted it to an EKII adding the pins.
    I'm not an expert though so i would like to get your feedback.
    Thanks in advance,
    Chris

    Hi Chris, you cannot convert one of these from a first class to a second class version as the sizes are different. 30mm width for the 2nd class, opposed to 45mm for the first class.

    Cheers, Ade.

    looks like a good Deumer to me. Should be 4 attachment pins. If you look closely on the rear, you can make out some faint lines where the pins would have been mounted. Maybe the mark in the centre is a botched repair attempt since the bottom pins came off. A nice spange besides this, well done.

    First of all thanks for your time to reply guys. Ade your everywhere in this forum. Like a guardian angel
    At first i got excited by your positive feedback both said ok. Another member who i had spoken to prior starting this thread was also positive.
    But today i found this picture from a member who says that he has 2 spanges exactly like this 1. He said it's a cast copy. That's how all 3 examples have that scratch on the reverse under the L/11 mark.
    If they can make copies like this then God knows if our collections are good.
    i really wanted this piece
