    What do you guys think of these?

    The ribbon passed the black light test, but I'm a little curious about the Iron Cross attached to it. There is no manufacturer stamp on the ring, and there appears to be a "glittery" affect when looking at the black paint in the right light. Is that normal? It also has rounded off elbows on the Swastika; something I've not noticed before on other examples. Perhaps this particular maker chose to do this?

    The one on the right has "7" stamped on the ring, which according to my research suggests it was manufactured by Paul Meybauer.

    Let me know what you guys think.

    Thanks!

    The Meybauer cross is good, the other example is, IMO, a fake.
