    Hello collectors:I am about to purchase an Adolf Hitler Platz enamel street sign. It seems authentic, but I am not sure? I need your opinion. Please, see the pictures. It's quite expensive.

    Thanks

    It appears to have received the attentions of a modern day grinding wheel. These signs are heavily faked, and looking at this one, i'd steer clear, it just don't look right!

    HI. The print looks in very good condition, to be an origional, also the sign is not totally flat ie it is concaved, but no scratches on the center..the grinder marks could be from cutting the fixings, but i dont think so ,they anly go over the whole way on one corner..thare are also no marks of the fixings on the metal.. the metal is very fresh looking and has no effects of ageing...and the 4 corners are exactally 90 degrees ie the corners are sharp..i would walk away from this , in fact run away....but ask him is the mp40 for sale.....

    If you're looking to buy any type of enamelled sign, always ask to see the back. It's a good indicator as to whether its an original or modern repro. Strangely they dont appear to have supplied a picture of this signs back, I wonder why?...

    I agree with the rest, IMO not period sign. But I also had to say forget the MP40 look at that MP44 Sturmgewehr, wow. I hate to make judgements, but it appears whoever is selling the sign might have put it with those fantastic weapons to try and legitimize the sign. A kind of take your eye off the ball kind of thing, if you will.

    Hi Luckystrike,
    Could you give a little detail about what to look for on original enameled sign backs. Only I'm going to look at a couple of enameled signs in the next few days, a Adolf Hitler Strasse sign which I'm told is without any chips & interestingly a enamel sign which has had the enameled swastika knocked off, but the it still has runes on it, if it comes to anything I don't know, but any information on what to look out for would be more than useful and welcome.
    Regards
