    Notice the exact same 'DRL' eagle disc has been used inside the compass,
    on the cigarette case and also the lighter !

    A load of this type of stuff appeared several years ago where SS logos
    were attached, along with submarines and party eagles, onto 'brass'
    'Kriegsmarine pocketwatch cases' - Even an arthritic eagle glued
    to the middle of an original bakelite canteen.

    I've also seen cheap clocks with ill-fitting paper dials displaying
    runes and eagles and bad 'SS' stampings on them..........


    I wonder who is making this junk ?
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Why would anyone use a compass in the Olympics?

    Though a fake, I guess the idea is, that it is supposed
    to be a 'commemorative' of some sort..............
