    These silly things show up on a regular basis all the time for the last several decades. Personally, I don't believe there were ever actual real ones at all...

    I think one of the old school authors showed one in a book at one time, I forget what the " Provenance was " but if I recall it was a modified piece of rifle brass.

    I have seen one recently on TV when I was watching the documentary on the Nuremberg trials. I think it was a original newsreel picture of the one Goring had.

    Agree with Ajax. The ones on the market are rubbish. But they did exist as your photo shows and the one I saw for Goring.
