    Default SS Allach Das Schwarze Korps Plaque Opinions

    Hello gents,

    Opinions please on this Allach SS Plaque, "Das Schwarze Korps". Das Scwarze Korps was the SS newspaper responsible for propaganda, and this award was given away as an honour prize to SS men who had solicited 5 half year subscriptions for the newspaper. The award was made in 1937 and 1939 and in the upper corners, the initials CD and TK stand for Carl Diebitsch and Theodore Karner respectively.

    My question is, is this one genuine...?

    Regards,

    Carl

    Yes Horst, it appears so. If it is genuine, that would be a pity. I am concerned however that the repair looks quite recent. The adhesive looks very clear so one would assume that this item hasn't been lying in a box or wardrobe for example. I'm not sure. Hopefully somebody can add to your thoughts, which are appreciated...thank you.

    Regards,

    It's original. IMHO, the high quality, intricate detail of the wreath, lettering, and adler are without question. Appearance of surface also looks period. Unfortunately, it looks like it broke and somebody let their 3 year old try to super glue it back together. Also looks like they put super glue on all the chips to prevent discoloration. Could be a recent repair who knows when. Crying shame it's broken.

    Thanks gents, I appreciate your comments and thoughts. I agree with you Jay, the repair work was not done by a careful hand at all was it? Shame.

    No Patrick, I let this one go. It isn't something that I would generally go for, but the opportunity arose and I briefly considered making an offer. Hopefully, whoever did pick it up has cleaned off some of that greasy glue on the back. Not the neatest of repair jobs...

    Oh well. How much did the person want for it? Because I am sure if could have cleaned up nicely.

    The repare job was not that neat no I bet my cat could do better.

    I'm sure that your cat could have done a much better job Patrick, even with its eyes closed and two paws tied behind its back!

    I honestly don't remember the asking price though...but it was probably quite cheap, so as to catch my interest, despite not being in my area.
