    Phil,

    I have a difficult time with these pieces, not unlike you. Its a story attached to a seller that will carry many questionable pieces.

    The AH Mug by Bruckman is an accepted item I believe and looks proper, but the NSDAP is engraved. I do not have the tools or experience with these items like I do with others, but dinnerware and flatware make me very skittish.

    All I can say is, when I see a piece it either clicks or it doesn't. If I saw these I would keep walking no doubt. Maybe they are correct, I don't know. But it would appear that this is an area for many questionable pieces and it seems like they are all popping up now.

    A crazy market and people are just tossing money at it and posting pictures before and after purchase on the forums. But now I have a new standard. Would I sell these? No. Not unless I was shown the light with provenance and such.

    Best,

    Kris

    Phil,

    No need to feel embarrassed at all. This part of the market has a lot of gray area and sometimes pieces just do not look right. I see pieces recently that I have to sit and look at for a while before I structure my words. Unique items really. Engraving is tough, but if there is some provenance the buyer needs to look hard at that. I think we have to question everything, but not crush it if there is a possibility.

    Thank you and I hope the buyer is pleased with the items as in many cases that is all that matters. When you put items up such as this you invite scrutiny and rarely a clean cut answer.

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Best,

    Kris
