Nothing wrong that I can see. Has an identical eagle to the piece I got out of the woodwork and Wellner is known for having more than one company logo/marking.
The Wellner stamp mark on your piece is not the style mark used by Wellner from 1934 to 1958. Please note photo

Here are some other examples showing numerous markings:

The piece that I got out of the woodwork that the vet brought back was marked AWS Silwello: August Wellner Söhne AG

I have had several offers from both dealers and collectors on this tray. I am not worried about its authenticity. It came from Thomas Whittmann and has veterans providence to back it. This is a political issue with the forum. Has nothing to do with the piece. Enjoyed being a member here when there were more knowledgeable members. Good bye.
Which moderator have you got issues with? Have you spoken with other moderators about your concerns? I suggest you get in touch with Adrian Stevenson and tell him of your concerns, he is a very fair-minded individual. Nobody should be put in such a position that they feel they have to leave the forum just because of the actions of others.
Books published to date... 'Belfast Diaries: A Gunner In Northern Ireland'... 'A Tough Nut To Crack - Andersonstown'... 'An Accrington Pal: The Diaries of Pte Jack Smallshaw, September 1914 To March 1919'.
I did send Sam a PM this morning to which I have had no reply.
