known fakes

[ <<  1-3  >>  ]

militaria item Org. Todt WBC for technical personnel
- German
The finish on this fake is anodised zinc with a silver-grey wash. It has some half dozen points which would indicate that it is the product of a recently created die. NB: This fake does not appear in any of the reference books as yet!

militaria item SS other ranks buckle
- German
This reasonably sophisticated copy is a Hungarian fake from the early years of the 21st century. The prongs are more or less the correct shape, but there are other features which give the game away, so caveat emptor with this one!

militaria item Fake Allgemeine SS belt buckle
- Hungary?
This would appear to be made from the same dies as the now well-known Waffen SS copies with Assmann markings in die-struck steel with silver wash finish. Amost certainly this item comes from Hungary and has Overhoff & Co markings on the reverse. It appears to be made of nickel, but this is not the same material as the genuine article.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
