Yes, Virginia, They Did (and Do) Make Fakes of Common Visors

Article about: I had someone recently tell me that they never made fakes of common visors. I wish it were so. While there are plenty of reproductions on the market, there were (and are) fakes made of commo

    $35 wasn't cheap in 1970. I started collecting in 72-73 and you could buy a real nice SA dagger for under $50. Most common belt buckles and badges were $5-10. $35 would buy almost a hundred gallons on gas.
    You are quite right. I do not want to suggest that $35 dollars for me as an eighteen year old was at all cheap. Gasoline doubled in price in the wake of the October 1973 war and the stagflation was on until the early '80s. The price of Nazi regalia also rose later in the '70s. My first black SS cap in 1971/2 was USD 125 at considered by all to be an insane price.

    I would say, though, that I am not at all sure that $35 allowed fakers to make a cunning fake, as there was at said time still a large, plentiful supply of real regalia, nor was the market in any way as sophisticated and humped up as it has been in the last period, especially since the onset of the internet.

    A gallon high test octane gas was .35 cents when I got my first car.

ID:	486752This person, who is still active despite the passage of time, well described the market of fakes in the year 1969. This booklet was the opening shot in the fight that transpires here and elsewhere every minute with ceaseless intensity. No one could have foreseen any of this in 1969, that's for sure.

    Very nice page evokes a different and simpler world in which these things were plentiful.
    Reminds me of the Sea-monkey eggs advertised on the back of comic books that one could buy a packet of for 5 cents.

    Here is another example of a fake of a somewhat common hat--a KM Donald Duck:

    Even Janke made (and probably still does) fakes of infantry EM/NCO hats (this one is being sold as an original--note the "mothing")

    This is a fake artillery officer visor for sale on Ebay right now (along with the original owner's alleged veteran cap).
    The maker (Seebrecht) did exist, but it reflects their postwar address.

    Note how the green of the band is off from wartime WH examples:
