My HC NOK single mount for comparison.

JC, great comparison of the different ribbon shades!

Thanks JC, & that comparison is pretty stark!

I suppose you're right, we are hyper-critical and dissect the small things; but, indeed that makes it interesting for us!

What puzzled me was if these were to represent the national colors, why they took liberties to use salmon/dark or bright orange in the manufacturing.

Anyway, here's my one & only next-of-kin example - accompanied by its rather orange non-combatant cousin.

Very nice single mount crosses Gary & James!

I have a few variations of these as well but so far my only NOC single looks like was made on a monday morning or ... the wearer was run over by a truck while wearing it!

Thanks & best regards

JC
