A good length of ribbon.
So it is authentic, thank you for you're time
It is real.
Wouldn't a "UV" test work ? G
Chrisk, I was just pointing out that no-one advised that method.. Nice ribbon though.. It would look great on one of my EK2's without one !! G
I can see nothing that says fake or modern.
"Much that once was, is lost. For none now live who remember it."
Impossible IMO to tell from such photographs. Well-lit, macro images are essential and will be backed up by a UV test and finally a burn test if there is a loose thread available.
In any case, original EK ribbons are readily available in mint condition for cheap with many dealers.
