Gents,

Would appreciate your thoughts on this 25yr NSDAP ribbon bar. These are the only photos available. The 25yr device looks to me to be bronze or has it just darkened.

Regards,

AB.

Thanks John for your reply.

I had a read through Rick's great article on ribbon bars and yes It seems to be a 90's fake. Red cloth backing with the flat catch are enough red flags for me. An in-hand inspection would confirm it but that's not necessary. It is one of the better fake 3 place NSDAP bars out there but Rick has explained how to spot them perfectly.

Regards,

AB.

I am not a fan of how the backing material is placed. I would like to see a close up of the catch before making a decision.

Hi Paul,

Yes I agree about the catch. It's listed on Oakleaf Militaria for $500. Only the two photos are shown. The front looks very convincing. The ribbons and devices could very well be original.

Regards,

AB.

It's an Ohio Parts Fraud classic. Note the hand snipped brass catch. If stamped out (as an original would be) it would... fall off the end with no metal at the edge. You're right on about the painted device. :beer:
