    The fake one is a repro and was used for the Hart's War movie (nice work as for moviemakers, but ...
    there were NO USA pilots at Stalag 318 VIIIF

    Stalag 318 VIA didn't even exist.
    One thing I am happy about: the guys are selling it as a movie repro

    The only problem with it: 318 VIIIF was a STALAG!

    Looking nice, but all of the Oflag IIE dog tags were made from zink, NOT from steel!

    There was a Stalag VIIIB (Lamsdorf).
    Here an example of one of the best fakes from that Stalag that I have seen in the last months:

    Sold a month a go for almost 50 bucks at Ebay...

    I am very sorry for the buyer, because the only original thing about it is the dog tag.
    Out of which someone made not long ago a "nice original POW's bracelet":

    The faker probably didn't know that the FRONT STALG 125 dog tags had a different shape (and only two holes) from all the other stalag tags:
