    Hi,

    Any opinions on this Krim shield? My first thoughts are that it is a legitimate example without the backing. Any opinions are appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Hello Brian,
    If you post your photos in a larger size, members will be able to click on them and enlarge them. It is difficult to tell with photos this small.
    If I am not mistaken, your photos are about 60 KB's, the ones I post are approx. 250 KB's.
    Hope this helps,
    Ralph.

    Hi Brian,

    These pic's are abysmal for giving a positive I.D., but I'll stick my neck out and say an Orth type zincer. Whether genuine or not is another matter on the scant evidence here and they are copied to a high extent.

    Regards, Ned

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for the bigger pic's. The shield is by an unknown maker and is often referred to as the "Orth type", but in fact there are little or no similarities, it just appears to be a name that's stuck. Some collectors think this is a fake shield, but the concensus these days it's actually a genuine zinc piece that's often not particularly well defined. It's actually a rather rare shield as Krim's go. Here's another one in better condition.
