Article about: by A.J. Zawadzki Hi Simon, please share your observations with us. On initial glance there appear to be slight differences in some of the details (snake’s head; feathering on the eagle), but

    Hi Tony.Just some more photos so everyone can see the badge.And as I've asked : were they numbered or was the number engraved by the owner?



    PS.I guess that buying original Nagalski spinner to this badge will be good decision ?

    Cheers.

    Thanks for posting the pics that I was unable to (and only just realized)!

    As far as serial numbering, all I can say is that stamped numbers are the more common method of numbering the badge at time of production. Engraved numbers are an indication that the owner could have had this done after receipt of the badge. Perhaps other members can elaborate further.

    Thanks again for your post.

    This is a great thread, and with the never ending, and increasing, flood of decent fakes, it will be centre of this website.

    I have more than 15 minutes to myself this weekend, so I will be picking everyone's brains with my collection. I have a few nice pieces, but I know I have more than a few fakes/ copies.

    See you then!

    Great to have new member

    By the way I think that this "Star of Przemyśl" is good( or maybe I'm wrong.Am I?) but what about the ribbon?Know that this is in the right colours but is that original example or just replacement modern ribbon?

    Hello SF,

    Przemyśl Stars are copied (surprise surprise) and some are very well done with the serial number and maker marks reproduced convincingly. A telltale giveaway is that they are cast in a white metal alloy and therefore they will not have the brass substrate show-through that most original examples exhibit.

    Overall looks this one looks OK, although the only way determine authenticity would be to actually handle and inspect this star. I’d be much more comfortable seeing some of the brass showing through the silver plating which is very characteristic for these stars.

    The ribbon is a replacement. Original issue ribbons consisted of the red center section sewn onto a slightly wider white backing. This one does look like a pre-war replacement as it has correct fabric weave, width and pattern.

    Anyway you slice it, it’s a risky purchase.

    Cheers,
    Tony
