    I also belive it is original but what do You think about the ribbon? Is it post war made or there were different ribbons?

    The ribbon is original. You can find them on occasion slightly narrower. The narrow ribbons are normally said to be for Schinkel crosses but I'm not aware of any proof this is true, more likely collectors myth. Regular EK2 ribbons are 30mm but they can be found as narrow as 25mm. What's the width on the one above?

    Ah found it; EK2 Ribbon sizes, what are your thoughts?

    I haven't found the maker yet.

    Exactly! This ribbon is 25 mm wide and normal ribbon is 30mm.

    Nothing to worry about, the photo Ingrid has shown in the thread she linked to shows there are three varying widths of EK ribbon. I measured a few of mine and I have them in 30mm, 27mm and 25mm. All are perfectly acceptable.

    I also made a photo of 25mm and 3mm ribbons.
