Great thread.

Yes I agree with you Michael.. they are all very interesting especially that one on the backing cloth with the label. I've never seen any like this which is why they caught my interest straight away..

Talking Hi Welsh RS

That is why it would be very interesting to study one of these shields personally in hand.

I do not think these are prototypes. I think more in the line of (as the titles says) factory samples on which no prongs are attached.

I am going to agree with Pascal about these shields being factory samples without hardware. When I first looked at the images I didn't pay close enough attention. What I initially thought were cast in guide holes are, in fact. drilled holes. My mistake for not really examining the images with greater scrutiny.

Thanks for bringing these to the table. This is an enjoyable thread.

Hello Bruce,

Many thanks for your opinion on these and agreeing with pascal.. they really are both lovely pieces, and yes as you said the holes are drilled rather than cast into the shield. They are even more amazing in hand than the photos can show..

Hello

Very interesting thread.
I must admit a know little to nothing about the Narvik shields and only own 3 campaign shield in general.

In my eyes there are differences between these 2 shields, I attached and highlighted areas the stung me a little. But there a also the eagles head, thickness of the "1" and more witch I didnt highlight.

I am here to learn also and maybe this is a silly questions but ..

Is that common among Narvik shields of the same manufacturer to have that big differences? Or is it rather just from Factory example to "mass production" ?
Or something else that explains it ?

Thank you very much for your time
Sindri

Hi Sindri,

Thanks for your comments. First of all, there are no silly questions only silly answers

It is not common for a manufacturer to have big differences, at least not in the same die. I also noticed some differences between the 2 shields. But you have to take into account that the shield was photographed (and not scanned) underneath a plastic cover and at an angle. This maybe explains some of the differences but I would love to personally examine one of these shields in hand.

Hi Pascal

Thanks for the reply and information.
Yes that is true, it could explain some of the differences, like the texture of the "Edelweiss" is extremely over exposed on the "plastic cover photo".

And its true also, its hard to this kind of comparing only by photographs, at least in my case, the longer I look, the more I start see what I want to see

Again this is an interesting thread, I will be following it, unfortunately not able to make many (any) helpful comments an this topic.

All the best
Sindri

Hi Sindri,

Just curious what did you mean when you said “ the longer I look, the more I start see what I want to see ” ? Is that a good thing ?

Well... I don’t know what to take from that sentence... surely you could explain further ? You can say it openly whether it be good or bad, all comments are welcomed

hehe no, not really There is no deep msg here ( I am a very shallow man) and not sure why I would not say my opinions openly on a media witch works only on opinions.

Like I said below, its hard to compare from photos, when I stare at a small section of the screen and get tired, I start to see what I want to see.
Was answering Pascals comment on it would be easier to have them in hand.

All the best from Iceland
Sindri
