    Hey guys just seen this on a online dealership, its 65 which i guess isn't a bad price but i know that Krim shields can be well faked and im not sure about this one, doesn't the eagles head look a little funny?

    Any shield guys want to have a crack at this one for young Glen? Do the blobs of solder holding the pins on the back look ok? Does the wear look right?
    I'm a little puzzled by this, the high points look worn as you would expect but does it look a little too good? No dings or scratches, just very even and consistent wear yet the extreme edges are not worn at all?

    Thanks Adrian, I know that Krim shields can be hard to tell apart but i am puzzled with this one, do you think that 65 is a good price if it is indeed original?
    Thanks, Glen.

    Hmm. Originals with backing plate and cloth go for between 100 - 150. Taking into account these are missing from this one it might be about right but please wait for some better idea on originality first.

    Wow, another very scary Krim Shield. Photo is not very high in quality and I can't enlarge it, but the top of the the thing looks half way decent, especially the numbers. However, seriously lacking detail on the lower half, IMVHO, it's a fake. Very valid points made Adrian about pins and wear. I've seen soldier on these but never that much. It seems that these metal arm sleeves get strange wear because of overcoats etc, rubbing on them.

    Is it the photo or is the 'IM' in 'KRIM' curving down? That would worry me, personally i'd pass on this one.
