A good customer/friend of mine was recently tempted into bidding on some galvano Garde Stern on Ebay.de. I took a look and immediately realised they were copies. They lacked the crisp details that the originals have and had bubbles in the surface of the metal. So here are 2 original examples, they are both slightly different which is typical of all Imperial items.

Both of these have soldered loops for small leather wedges but there are older examples which have square nuts and screw posts to secure them to the wappen.

Agreed, the lack of detail is usually a red flag for wappens etc. Nice stars :D

Regards,

Edwin
