    I am looking on a bidding site for a WW2 MID oakleaf but not sure which are genuine or not. I thought that they originals had a hole in the top of the leaf so that it could be stitched onto the medal. I see a lot that have 2 pin like clips on the back and wondered if these are genuine?

    TD thank you will give them a ring. The one you have directed me toon eBay is a later replacement so not sure if that’s means a number of years later or new. After genuine one so will give WMS a ring. 19197277-1FAD-40C2-AE49-0077FD8BB837.jpeg

    Pretty sure the leaf with a clip is genuine, this is my father's original ribbon clearly showing puncture holes:

    Here is the oak leaf, unfortunately clip missing:

    There is a version with holes, as per his medal ribbon bar:
