Recommended Posts

Bracket 6.

18mm hand made from zink. Safety pin brazed onto the back.

The two device holes are slightly off centre, due to the location of the safety pin.

This bracket would have been suitable for one 30mm award or two 15mm awards.

3 Machine made brackets. Stamped shaped bracket.

Top and bottom brackets are Iron brackets. The small bar (18mmx25mm) has a steel pin, suitable for one award 25mm. The 4 placer (18.5mm X 58mm) has an iron pin, suitable for 4 awards 15mm.

The middle bracket is manufactured from stamped brass, with a brass pin. 18.5mm X 45mm, suitable for 3 awards 15mm.

Although different materials, they all have exactly the same characteristics, with a minor variation as to the location of the hinge placements.

Last example is this 7 place bracket. Manufactured from zink with a brass pin and catch. The size is 19mm X 104mm and is suitable for seven 15mm award ribbons.

The catch and hinge are made from separate brass parts, which have been brazed onto the metal for a hand worked finish.

When you have finished are you going to rebuild the original board in English?

Wouldn't mind a picture for reference if you do.
