    hello all....I picked this piece up recently along with some other small items, I didn't pay too much and now that I have it in hand I have some concerns that it may be a reproduction, perhaps one of those "Cave Creek" specials that I've seen mention of(post-purchase)

    so here are some pics for review and/or comment...if it is a repro I want to share with the group as a learning lesson...

    here's what I don't like about the piece which leads me to believe it is a repro...

    * ribbons are fairly clean
    * backplate may be brass which apparently is a big no-no, although it could be colored steel
    * the catch looks similar to reproduction ones
    * sword devices on some awards but not others
    * devices are not as detailed as other ones I have on other ribbons
    * the ribbon combo/order seems correct although the Red Eagle(#2) and Hohenzollen(#3) ribbon may be out of order
    * the not often awarded Life saving ribbon(#4) - is that what it really is ?

    all input would be greatly appreciated....
