Common Fake Fonts: look here first!

Article about: Hi guys, Here's another very common fake 'font' to learn to recognize if you plan to buy any Erkennungsmarken- it's probably tied for most common with the crappy so-called "Rokas"

    Surprised to see this being flogged on that forum, as there are lots of experienced collectors on it. Just goes to prove that it is good to research before you buy.

    Good afternoon,

    While scrolling through the militaria E-stand on WAF I came across this Rokas fake and it is actually being sold as an original (for 89 euro).
    I am posting this for educational purposes. The '3' and 'r' are the dead giveaway.
    Thanks to this forum, members like Blackcat, Eike & others and the book by Jean Ho´dal I managed to spot the flaws right away. So this is a good example about educating yourself if your interested in erkennungsmarken.

    Regards, Rik

    P.s. I send a PM to the seller to tell him te bad news.
    Thought about buying that one as it fits into my collecting area but something didn't look right so, I never gave it another thought.

    It is a good thing you didn't go after this one Ralph. You will find a nice panzer EKM for your collection eventually.

    Good afternoon guys,

    I found a good image showing the so called Rokas font wich is being used on fake EKM.
    This gives a good clear view of what you should be aware of. Hope it wil be of any help.

    Regards, Rik

    He has requested the ad be removed.
