    Thumbs down Narvik Shield

    Hi Tony,
    You have to be very careful with Narvik Shields and this example is a piece of junk! The biggest give-away besides what it is made of and the finish is the blobby #4 in the 1940 date, along with the detailing to the edelweiss and the eagle and wreath are all wrong too.

    Here is an early example of a Kriegsmarine Narvik Shield in my collection. It is an early tombak example by Juncker compare it to the fake that you posted.

    Regards,
    Jody

    I believe this KM shield is a fake of the well known "small 4" type of which there are several variations, this being one of the better ones. Besides there being the problems with the numerals, and the serifs on both them and the letters, which are very soft in definition as well, the anchor and rope are also incorrect.

    It should be borne in mind that this is the most copied of all the campaign shields by far, and some are poor, but others are pretty good, this one being in the latter category, even down to being made from the correct buntmetal material for the type it's copying. It appears to have been scratched at sometime by a dealer/collector to see if it's solid buntmetal rather than just plated. All in all close, but no cee-gar.

    Regards, Ned.

    Hi Jody,

    Beautiful shield you've got there. I know these were once 'accredited' to Juncker, but at the time it was not proven, has the consensus changed due to new findings? I know these were produced in buntmetal/tombak, and also cupal, the double strike noticed around the numerals and letters is often found on this makers Narvik shields, and it's nice to see that yours has this unfakeable flaw that is only found on originals. Excellent.

    Regards, Ned.
