judging authenticity of ribbons

Recommended Posts

An interesting perspective on "hooks and eyes" could be obtained from Manchu red cross medal that was introduced (according to Peterson) in 1938.

No "standard gear" in sight folks ;)

It doesn`t matter - regular member or special supporting member medal we are talking about ...

These sewed eyes are everywhere ;)

Same story with worn out ribbons and replacement, brand new one`s .

Here comes a nice example from my collection

On the left is "old" ribbon and on the right brand new replacement ribbon (authentic one of course ;))

Actually the only ribbon that I saw without early ("early" in case of official japanese orders and medals) "sewed" style of gear attachement is this one. One with the glued stripes ... :)

Same sewed story with japanese Red Cross medals.

From early to aluminum ;)
