    You're 99.9% sure it's a fake? I don't see anything obviously wrong with it myself. Most of the text appears to be single, dedicated stamps, which fakes haven't yet used so far as I've seen, and I would think it's Feldwirtschafts-Zug Nachschub-Depot maybe (?), so not a combat section but a supply section- not exactly the 'sexy' kind of unit fakers choose. The smallest unit section is individual stamps, which makes sense since it's the variable bit, the age looks legitimate too- nothing obviously fake there. I think you'd have to find some good proof that the main text is proper for the Prinz Eugen though- sometimes it's a little tough with SS units because many used atypical texts; the SS-Regiment "Germania", for example, used simply SS ,,G'' on their discs. So it's not necessarily suspect that it's so simplified.
    Ohhhhh- pillage then burn...

    Matt is the go to guy on these EKM's. I too like the stamping. Not the same font on other fake EKM's with all capital letters. Do you scoop this one up?

    Not good Matt you should apply a small fee before you give your valued opinion on this highly specialized and complex topic

    I agree with Wool. Its damn hard tracking down these units and deciphering them. I've got alot better at it but not even close to Matt's skill. These hit and run dudes dont even say thanks.
