    Default Original or not - 2 Erkennungsmarken from Estonia?

    I got these 1/2 Erkennungsmarken from Estonian seller. I usually do not buy such items because there are so many fake around but as price was very low and I got also some other German stuff I now have them. Are these originals?

    These two have a similar font and lettering to the fake Aufk Abt Nordland ones and the unit designation of the Sturm Btl one makes no sense personally i don't like them !!

    Actually font size is different, sturm btl. has pretty small letters so they are not made with the same stamps. I usually do not buy ID discs but I paid only 12 euro for these discs, MP magazines, German water bottle + some other stuff. I see no point to fake ID discs only for 1-2 euro but maybe i'm wrong.

    I'd say the Sturm one's font certainly looks like a common fake one, and I can't say I like the Panzer one either- the holes look further down from the edge than the norm, and that tall, narrow 'O' for the blood group is just like so many fakes. It's all sans-serif capitals too, which is always a reason to wonder. I'd suggest looking through the thread on fake fonts to see if you can match any of the letters or numbers. The seller may not have known they were bad or did and that's why they were so cheap- to get rid of them. One never knows the motivation. It's certainly good that you got other nice stuff for the money so it doesn't matter that these are fairly likely bad...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...
