    Default Ribbon bar opinions please

    I am looking at this small group of ribbon bars and I have a pair of concerns that I wish to run past the forum.

    I am concerned about the shape of the 'u' type catch on two of the bars, they look a little roughly cut compared to the normal, high quality rounded ends I usually see. (although, to be fair I don't take a huge amount of notice of ribbon bars as they are not a high priority for me). Secondly, the backing on the NSDAP 10 & 15 year long service bar is another concern. I read that the blackish-grey backing can be another sign of a fake.

    Am I being overly cautious here or do I have a genuine point of concern?

    Cheers
    Glenn

    I like them too. The blackish grey backing is also found on originals and if it comes with a moth nip or two so much the better.

    Thanks Adrian! Mind you, I wouldn't be surprised if fakers are breeding moths specifically for nipping purposes!

    Sadly I missed out on these as the dealer hadn't updated his site to indicate they were already sold.

    It's annoying when that happens.

    That's a shame they were nice ribbons. It can be rather frustrating when that happens.
