This brand comes from the alleged hoard in Germany , Brandenburg.
My Persönbliche opinion about these brands is as follows.
HANDS OFF !
In order to easily brand , the condition is very bad. It strikes me personally as the brand would have been treated with acid to make them look older .
This may or may not have happened.
I have had many brands of this unit in the hands . Many archaeological finds from the area of Brandenburg.
So be careful ! Can be better.
I can only warn !
There is 101% good copies of Dirlewanger brands.
This is fake?100%?
Just from the look of it I am guessing it is 99% fake. The construction of the disk is suspicious by itself.
This one was on Militaria321 auction sit last year for Euro 240! Don't know about it being from Brandenberg but looks OK to me.
any opinions friend?
Just curios what does the roll number read on both sides, I cannot make it out. Is it the same??
I think too patina is suspect -distinctive for fakes. mass found i dont buy.i and friends found few tags dw, and they dont looks like that .worth comparing numbers of old goods tags and new big find. probably the numbers could be a duplicate.
Seems a couple of DW tags have hit the market recently, for such a rare unit a suddent 'glut' of finds is a red flag.
