    Sorry i don't think these are anything to do with the occupation!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Well, such items do not have any real connection with occupation but they still were very popular among the Germans. In 1940 Germans were like tourists in France anyway.

    For 100% sure?

    I canīt give a statement on this exact bracelet, but for sure there are of course 1940 made souvenir items too, so i would like to hear a closer explanation of your opinion.

    Perhaps a tourist item from before the occupation, as it appears to have nothing relating to the Germans on it.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Nearly my opinion too. Tourist souvenir with no relating to the Germans. Could be baught by a tourist, of course by a solder too.
    But all in all i think it is period and made in 1940 - there is no reason for faking such item in my eyes. Nothing to earn money :-)

    Never stated that it was a fake only "post 45" meaning an item made after 1945 - was in france/Paris in the 60,s and these types of items were selling in most souvenir shops throughout the city & I would guess that they still are being sold to tourist today.
    But I guess your guess is as good as mine relative to being sold to German soldiers as well??
