Reference: Fake Medal & Ribbon Bars

Recommended Posts

Very interesting thread. I am amazed at the medal selection the "Austrian Faker" utilizes. On the 4 medal bar shown, is the Luftschutz Ist class a copy?

Regards Mark

Not sure, but it's likely.

Kind regards

With these some  the medals and ribbons are fake. You need a ken eye if getting into medal bar collecting.

Hello Dave,

Personally, I can tell from experience, from collecting medal bars, studying their make up, reference books, online forums, etc. It can be a mine field, so it can be useful to seek a second opinion at times.

Kind regards,
Pierce
