    Prague Castle Spange - Authentic?

    Hi all,
    I would like to share with you this Prague Castle Spange and ask about your opinions. I believe the proportions of the Castle are quite big to be original, but it is just a feeling as they are many different spanges and I am not an expert. I have been checking spange pictures from other posts but I didn't find this model, so even if it is a fake it would be good to have it here.

    (dimensions are around 3X1 cm)


    Thank you in advance!

    Mario

    Hi Mario, the design and size look fine ... I've not seen one with round pins though before ?

          Are you sure Ian? Even though there is a 22mm wide prager bar floating around the vast majority of Prager burg spanges are 30mm wide...
          I dont recall ever seeing the OP spange design posted here but I like it

          Best regards

            Thank you so much, guys. I just bought it, so in case you are interested in more detailed pictures, please let me.


            Jean-Claude, sorry but I am not familiar with some acronyms. What do you mean with "OP spange"?

              Hi Mario

              OP stands for "original post" meaning the bar you posted to start this thread

                Hiya J-C, the full-size ones are but the larger ribbon bar size I have 2 off is 22.5mm x 7.5mm.

                  Mario,
                  Could you please post a picture of the spange’s reverse? I like what I see of the front but a picture of the back would let us see how the pins are attached.

                    Here you go Dale, it arrived today. Finally, the pins are not round, it was some kind of visual effect.

                    Cheers,
                    Mario

                      Mario,
                      Thanks for the new pictures. Looks like a nice spange to me. The pins being like they are will make it a bit difficult to store or display, but I wouldn’t try to bend them down as they break off from the spange very easily.
