KRIM Shields for review

Article about: Howdy gents, These have been offered to me. This area is not my strong suit. Have been reading related threads on the Krim Shield. Very helpful. Think these may be fakes, but you all know be

    All these shields are fake rubbish IMO, including the Narvik.

    Thanks for the better shots Octavian,

    I agree with Pantherv regarding the Krim shields, they are all fake reproductions of the 1.1 type pattern. Below are some examples of the fake and an obverse pic of an original 1.1 next to the repro version.

    Regards, Ned.

    Wow! Thanks Ned for that great comparison. Sure enough i see the notch below the wreath. This original to repo reference is excellent. Bright as day... fake all around. One little notch... LOL Appreciate it.

    Sorry didn't mean to sound so snappy. I just don't like seeing collectors being ripped off.
