    Default SS "Oranienburg" ID-disc real or fake.

    This one looks good to me but I would still like to hear your opinion before I buy it. The disc is in two pieces and found in Germany.

    Well the obverse marking matches the one shown at the bottom of this thread page: Oranienburg? but weirdly the number font is different...
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Jan, sorry to be so late to the party on this but it is a nearly exact match to 2 tags photographed in "Die Erkennungsmarken der SS-Einheiten" pp 144-145 they have roll numbers 346 and 1853

    You have to be wary of books though- there are some that are truly awful, and most have no referencing to show just why the author believes a given example to be real. It could be his opinion or what he was told by a third party and who knows whether either one is valid...

    I decided to go for it, the seller is a very reliable one and although Iīm no collector of concentration camp itemīs I decided that I could own at least one item that illustrates that aspect of WW2.

    Hopefully the seller's reliability means he offers a lifetime authenticity guarantee- that's about all that really makes a difference since the majority of sellers are probably trustworthy people, but rarely know enough about Erkennungsmarken to avoid buying fakes themselves. They honestly think the pieces they have are real so are selling in good faith- but that doesn't make up for it if you buy something and find out later it's junk...
