    Forget backing issue

    Guys, I have a feldgendarmarie gorget and the backing is very fragile so much so that I am loathe to touch it . Is there anything that you can get to soften it up or preserve it better?.
    cheers

    I am assuming that the backing is a felt material, as it often is. Unfortunately, I know of nothing you can do to soften that up. Putting anything on it might actually cause it to fall apart. The only way to preserve it, from my experience and reading, is, unfortunately again, to simply handle it VERY carefully.

      Thanks for your response,I have had to put it in a frame to stop it moving around.it's not the felt back but the cardboard type which is slightly curved where it meets the metal. I thought that there might be a substance to brush on to give it some stability but if not it will have to stay framed to keep it safe.
