judging authenticity of ribbons

Recommended Posts

Well, looks like official ribbons lost this early "sewed" style of attachement after 1895 (most likely even a little bit earlier) and red cross ribbons kept it (and used it even after WWII).

Cheers,

Nick

Yes - two things of noteworthyness - earlier JRC pieces would appear to have their hooks sewn on the outside of the ribbon vs. later pieces sewn between the folds of the ribbon. And of course later Orders had more "standard" attachment gear.
