    Default Spange zur Medaille zur Erinnerung an den 1. Oktober 1938: Opinions

    Hi,

    Is this an original W.W.2 Prague Castle bar? I did not take a photo of the back, being afraid of breaking the pins by removing it from the ribbon.

    No, it is a reproduction...The reverse prongs are incorrect. Here is an original...you can see that the prongs are very short and wide...

    I believe there are some makers of this bar that used the thin prongs.

    I will try and find the evidence

    "The top bar is stamped 'L/12' on the reverse, and has the larger and wider prongs. The bottom bar has the two thin prongs, and nothing stamped on it's reverse".

    If you look around the forums there are opinions that the thin pronged examples are classed as 'Type B' and are indeed original. I guess the jury is out on this

    There is also a single pronged version

    I seem to recall that not only the short fat pin version are considered original but then again I don't follow the forums on these spange very much.
