    Usually you can tell when the paper is old, it will have crease lines, faded a little yellow, etc.. Do you have pictures of these so we can see them?

    From what I understand yes it was used. Kodak paper was not very common in Germany before 1945 as Kodak produced mainly cameras in Germany but I have seen examples of it. Post your pics and the photo guys will be able to help futher.

    A blacklight is useful to determine old paper or not.

    Exactly what Ade said. I always carry a small UV light keyring with me when Document shopping (its not 100% fake proof but a good start). Your first port of call is to put some pictures up here though. The experience on this site should get you the answers required

    Well finally managed to get a half decent shot of the dodgy writing,appears to be written with a modern felt tip pen,have a reasonable picture of the back showing the "manufactured by kodak" printing I havent ever seen on any other of my WW2 pictures and show a few face shots with an original WW2 picture overlaid for comparison. All of these photos look absolutely brand new,lady who sold them swears her uncle took these and the dates are the dates taken but everything screams reprint!

    Have a blacklight on its way but in the meantime can someone have a quick look and see what they think? Will request a refund if they are what I suspect...thanks

    To me they look very white and modern in appearance.
