Hi: I recently picked up the following Anhalt medal and ribbon bar. The medal seems fine to me, but I would like everyone’s opinion about the ribbon bar. The woven swords and rear pin strike me as being unusual. Any thoughts?
The field ribbon bar is indeed unusual. I have never seen hand-embroidered Hindenburg Cross swords before. This is a good sign to me as a counterfeiter would not usually spend time with such a thing. The ribbons are original. This is a nice home-made field ribbon bar in my opinion.
