Narvik shield real or fake help needed

Post by spooky976 » 29 May 2007 08:41

Hi

Anyone could tell me if this shield is real or a repro? The shields arent my specialty

I could add more photos in best quality.



Thank you in advance. :wink:

Looks like a good one, but would need to see the back side to be "more" sure......always show the backside of any medal, badge, or pin with as "clear" a view as your camera is capable of......more detail the better, of course, when posting......the front only tells half the story.

perhaps its me or just the photo angle but it looks like the number 4 is too small there is a known fake around with this fault known as the small 4 fake (very original name i know) but as i said might just be the photos supplied
