    Unknown ribbon on a non-combatant's bar?

    Recommended Posts


    Now the OP needs to confirm if the thin stripe on the edge is green or if it is blue.


    At first glance, I thought it was a "forest" green.  It looks more blue in the photograph than it does in person.  Took a look it with my trusty photographer's loupe, and the weft is a similar blue to the Lippe-Schaumburg ribbon.  I'm guessing that the green is just the result of aging, and it's effected some of the fibers more than others.  (The black on the EK also has a distinctly navy blue tint to it that's more visible to the unaided eye.)

    As said recently, I'm becoming more and more suspicious with the increasing number of ribbon bar fakes around, and it's well possible I'm too suspicious sometimes... I don't like the looks of this one, sorry! I might be wrong (and by the way, I'd prefer to be!), but this would not be one for my collection...
