    Default Krim Shield good?

    I've looked at many photos of Krim Shields on the forum, and it looks like shields are some of the more difficult items to gauge originality on. This one has the notch under the swaz at least, but otherwise I'm hoping to clear it through the forum before considering purchasing it. Backing I think is correct, and the photo is over saturated, which may be making the felt a hair too green. Not sure if all 6 cities are there, but I saw some originals here that weren't very well defined on all of those.

    Really appreciate the help on this one guys, as these look kind of tricky.

    Hi Scott,

    Looks like a good 3.9 type (unknown maker) to me. The pic's aren't the best as they're a bit small and slightly unfocussed, but I think on going by them the shield is good. It should be magnetic as the type was made only from sheet steel, and the backing plate, if original, should have large holes in it like this one below (the prong width can vary slightly from thin, as here, to a wider type). I'm being a little guarded, as in the last week I've been a bit too quick off the mark initially saying to a Souval PAB and a GWL PO badge that better pic's showed to be cunning fakes!

    Regards, Ned.

    Thanks Ned. Alas, I was too late to pick it up.
