Hi all, just a bit of expertise and advice, seen the attached for sale, for it's age it looks in remarkably mint condition, is it what it seems or is it a well made modern copy?

 

any comments appreciated

 

regards

Hello, 

I don't see anything suspicious with this set. 

Best wishes,

Hello Elmar thanks for  the comments, it's not often you see items in such a well preserved condition after such a length of time, particularly the outer case.

Alex,

I am a bit late to the question, but I agree  that there is nothing wrong - medal and ribbon are a nice snug fit.  Indeed I have a similar medal in a very similar condition together with its case and I have never doubted mine.

Regards,

Ian

I also have a set in a comparable condition. Is there a number how many of these G.A. Scheid pieces were made?

As for the number manufactured by G.A. Scheid I would hazard a guess and say in the hundreds, but I have no real idea sorry.

Others who are more knowledgeable than me may have a better 'ball park' figure.

Regards,

Ian
