While we're having a KRIM-fest,
what do you think of this one I've had for quite a few years...

Guys, especially the ones with good eyes, like Jon (tinmantis), it is not magic what Pascal and a few are capable of. If you save about 20-30 examples of good Krim shields here from the forum, you will easily note that they fall into less than 10 categories/main designs of original Krim shields. Among those say ten, about 4 are the most common types, discussed over and over again, like Jon´s example in this thread. Not neccessarily the same 4 but also 4 types can even be attributed to certain makers.
If you know the difference between an Assmann pilot and a Juncker, you can do this too, it is easy. Same goes for the other shields. Try it!

I've noticed several different backing paper colors. How many different colors are there? Is there any color that would be an indicator that the shield was a fake?
Thanks
Don

Not really Don. Fakes use all sorts of colours as backing papers, most of the time tan or reddish papers but these colours appear on originals as well.

From memory, I have seen these colours on original shields

1) matt black paper, rarely structured with lines ("Büttenpapier")
2) glossy black structured "paper", imitating leather, different patterns
3) tan to brown paper
4) reddish paper
5) light apple green paper
6) glossy dark green structured paper
7) field grey paper

Nice shield, Craig. Some from this maker are made in zinc, but yours does look magnetic. Right?

Good advice Frank,
I do have a huge file of examples of all kinds of badges/medals etc. and it helps emmensely...
But sometimes the voices in my head tell me to seek out human contact from time to time, to reassure myself I'm not 'completely' bonkers
It's always nice to compare notes with other collectors

best regards
jon

You are right, good to get out of the fortress (your location ) sometimes, before you go completely "bunkers".
