Hi guys,

I am uploading a couple of the images from the sales thread to this discussion so it remains useful once the sales thread has been deleted.

I also posted a link to this discussion on the sales thread.

Best regards,
Tom

Thank you gentlemen, I appreciate all expressing their concerns. Ribbon bars are not my expertise but wanted one for my collection to add a little "color," so purchased directly from Bruce Hermann years ago counting on his expertise. At any rate, I just now sent an email to Bruce and will let him know of multiple concerns regarding this ribbon bar. Moderator please leave up this add up and I will update. Please continue to post cons and any pros regarding this specific ribbon. Best, Frank

Frank,
I'm in complete agreement with my fellow members. A reproduction.

Bruce has had a lot of nice items for sale over the years. Iím sure there are also items that collectors might have had issues with. Nothing against Bruce or any individual dealer. Similarly, nothing against any collector who is selling the same. The fact of the matter is that all sellers (dealers and collectors alike) have their specialties. Nobody can know everything about everything. This is why itís better to choose as narrow a focus as possible and specialize. When you buy outside of your own knowledge base, itís important to check in with trusted resources to do if at all possible.

Wow, this was sold to him about 8 years ago! Once I received his email today I told him to give me a call in the next few days so we could take care of this issue. I look forward to hearing from him.

Thank you,

Bruce Hermann

Thanks all for your input and feedback. Greatly and sincerely appreciated. Please be assured too that I am not knocking Bruce. I only mentioned Bruce's name in the original post, before the ribbon bar was referred for discussion, to let any prospective buyer know the provenance. For me, a reputable seller such as Bruce, would give me additional confidence in my purchase(s). I simply placed the ribbon bar in a display cabinet since I purchased it and have only recently decided to return to Wehrmacht items (TR Army etched swords). I received a reply email from Bruce earlier today inviting me to give him a call later this week to discuss further.

I havenít had a lot of dealings with Bruce, but Iíve always found him to be a very nice and gracious guy. But I donít think a refund is in order after eight years. Just my personal opinion on the subject.

Eight years? Man, that's a lot of water under the bridge to hold a seller accountable for a item. Just the same good luck to you.

Final post and update gentlemen. I just spoke with Bruce personally and we came up with a very fair and amicable resolution that both Bruce and I are very happy with. Just what you would expect from Bruce who is a professional and honest guy whom I will gladly deal with in the future.
