  8. Hi Simi, to be honest, each time I see such hook on a ribbon bar, it is a fake. We see the hook from the swords on the Zähringen ribbon. You can see on original ribbon bar that the tailor has create the bar very carefully. Not like here when swords has been added on the bar. Even if the ribbons looks like original. Kay Winkler has such horrible ribbon bars for sale. If they were so marvellous, they should have been sold since very long time, that's my two cents Christophe
