Thank you for showing the Le Poer Power group. I think it has changed hands more than once in recent years. I know it is fashionable and it looks good, but I do not approve of court mounting such groups.
This is the first time I have seen the Le Poer Power group since 1999 when it formed part of my swop transaction with Colin Owen to get the DTD/ABO groups to Genl Piet Cronje and his son, Comdt Piet Cronje.
Colin fanatically believed in court mounting all medal groups.
There is no right or wrong way of mounting in my opinion, I would not remove an original ribbon, as worn by a recipient, but, court mounting is done so as to avoid contact wear, in an ideal world, original silk ribbon would be used, but, this is now much harder to actually do with the passage of time and the problem of finding it in any quantity.
I knew a collector in Johannesburg who once had the finest Kimberley collection in the world, but, he actually court mounted his entire collection on polyester ribbon!
Kind regards Frank
