Narvik Shield, any good?

Article about: The Narvik shield posted reminds me of this reproduction, which may have been a cast from an original.

    Default Narvik Shield, any good?

    I've just spotted this Narvik shield on a dealer's site and it looks OK to my untrained eye, what do the trained eyes think?

    These are the only photos so far until I contact the dealer for more.

    To my equally untrained eye it looks OK Glenn compared to the examples I've been looking at. I'm not sure how many different makers variants there are of these shields.

    I would ask for some pics of the reverse if possible.

    it looks good but sometimes the fronts of repros are very good !! if he is a reputable dealer all you should have to do is email or call him and get his email and he should be able to get you the images !!

    This is a reproduction and does not match known originals in my opinion. A small "4" fake.

    I think you are referring to a 'low' 4 fake? If so, I'm pretty sure this isn't one of those.

    Here is a 'small 4' or 'low 4' fake. There are several differences in the details between this and the one Glenn shows.

    Doesn't the Swastika look a bit off-center, only touching the wreath on one side? Just something that caught my eye...
    cheers, Glenn

    I think that characteristic is one of the features of the type 5/1 but in any case i'm still waiting for photos of the reverse from the dealer. If they aren't forthcoming then my interest in this piece goes no further.
