Yes...Thank You Dr.CMH....for your photo essay. As the saying goes..." a picture is worth a thousand words".

My pleasure to add where I can. Do take a close look at the shot of the ribbon bordering the Kampfbinde, there is something to learn there as well. I hope that my misfortune in collecting will aid in benefiting others. More than likely, it will improve the next generation of forgeries.
Well said. The patina is one of the defining criteria I now seek on any form of insignia. Thank you for your kind help in all of this.
My best to you, FB.
And to the Gauner who hopes to profit from the lesson here, to you, a big raspberry.
Thanks, may your search be crowned with pleasing patina and may all Gauner on all continents suffocate in their own wretchedness.
