    I have never seen a silver coloured ss 4 year. Even if the black paint was stripped it would be a bronze colour.

    Suspension ring on the ss medal is also wrong it should be teardrop in shape.

    From these pics it's hard to be certain about any of them. It's possible there is a mixture of fake and original items. The mounting of the medals just isn't right, very amateur and lacking in quality. It looks like it was put together during a lunchbreak.
    I would suggest passing on this one, saving your money and looking for a medal bar without any issues, there are many still around.

    never seen one that looked like that before. Looks like they were all individual medals thrown on. The ribbons should look nicer. Interesting combo too.

    Yeah I agree, looks garbage. SS 4 years service with Westwall medal? Strange, but I suppose not entirely unfeasable.

    The SS medal and a few others are in the wrong order for a start. Should be after the Hindenburg cross which should be before the war merit without swords. Ribbons are atrocious. They, like the others have stated have been "thrown" onto this bracket.

    All thats missing is the sticky back plastic
