A special Third Reich ribbon bar.

Yup, it is indeed. I had the brief privilege of having that on my kitchen table for Paws On. jumping

That brings up to about half a dozen the numbers of REAL ones I have seen in 40 years... among the 157,891 fakes out there.

As these hen's teeth show up, I always advise NOT showing detailed scans of exactly the features that distinguish good ones. Other eyes than collectors read any militaria collecting website, and the statistical odds are so heavily AGAINST any one of these being real that there is no point in giving the fakers tips on how to improve their nefarious wares.

It is easier to deal with questioned examples one at a time rather than issue blanket ways to tell when 1 In A Million is GOOD.

the only real "runes" bar I've seen/handled other than "The Evil One's"..... I've also handled mini-devices on bars for the 4 & 8 year medal.

As an interesting aside.... when you have a bar littered with combat awards and a blue LS Ribbon with no device..... high probability it was Waffen SS!!

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem
