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.

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:

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
