    Hi.,

    Yes is the same set...
    Mine Carl Poelath, Schrobenhausen set... the ribbon that is a fake, had a ribbon bar that is new but past the UV teste.
    The packet and the medal maybe original from the Carl Poelath, but i dont believe it is a wartime made (they are new... new zinc).

    Regards.,

    These are perfectly original zinc medals and paper packets. They were discovered many years ago in quantity but all lacked the ribbons.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I'd be OK with that if the maker mark wasn't cut out on my packet. I'd rather just have one that was complete without damage. I think that would ease my mind, but thank you, Adrian, for clearing that up!

    For some years after the discovery of these there was concern that there was a spelling mistake in the makers location and some people mistakenly labeled these as "fake". As a result of this scare, some mis-informed people started cutting the makers mark off the packets to try and make them more saleable and thus spoiling a perfectly original item.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Well that would explain it! What a pity. The envelope is in such great condition minus the maker. Hasty decisions made by those in the past will forever affect its future.

    Yes thanks very much Ade.
    I was just going to ask that question. Seemed like a very strange thing to do and had me puzzled.
    Thanks

    Do you have an opinion about originality?

    To be honest peewee, I don't like it personally, the details are a little too soft for my liking. There are enough of these around to make me want to pass on the one you picture and look for another.
