militaria item Fake tropical SS BeVo cap eagle, 1938 pattern
- German/Pakistan?
This is a modern copy of the classic eagle in rayon produced by BeVo of Wuppertal in 'sand' colour for the Mediterranean theatre. It would have been worn on a sand-coloured schiffchen or possibly on the Afrika Korps kepi. Perhaps one of the rarest of the SS cap eagles, for obvious reasons mostly found on sliced up pieces of roll like this.

militaria item Fake tropical SS BeVo sleeve eagle, 1938 pattern
- German/Pakistan?
This is a modern copy of the classic eagle in rayon produced by BeVo of Wuppertal in 'sand' colour for the Mediterranean theatre. It would have been worn on a sand-coloured tunic. Perhaps one of the rarest of the SS sleeve eagles, for obvious reasons mostly found on sliced up pieces of roll like this.

militaria item Fake SS cap skull and eagle
- German?
The eagle is a poor quality copy, which, on close examination, shows the characteristic pimpling, evidence of electroform construction, a process used on the originals. The skull is better, but the presence of raised SS runes on the reverse condemns it - the originals never had this detail. Also, the format of the skull eye sockets is incorrect.

militaria item Fake SS skull & cap eagle with real eagle
- German
The top two items (skull and eagle) are both marked 'SS475/43' and are copies. The bottom eagle, which is a period example, is marked 'SS475/42' (ie 1942). (These items do not belong to me and are not for sale.)

militaria item Waffen SS ski cap badges (one fake)
- German
The left-hand example is an original; the right-hand example is a very clever copy of a known woven wool badge, probably made in Pakistan. (These items do not belong to me and are not for sale.)
