    Default Folding Shovel on EBay

    Hi all,
    There is a folding shovel on Ebay in Germany at the moment - the item No is 370366581482 and I'm well confused as to whether it's the real McCoy and I wanted your opinions.
    It has a waffenant and a 1943 date stamp but it looks to be a Dutchie from the stop not being angled like a German one should be & theres also a strange discolouring where the stamping is, like someone has heated it???

    Like to hear what the experts think?
    Cheers from Oz!

    Yes Martin, something did not look right ........
    so I bought this one instead. A bit of a roughy but at least it's genuine. You can see the angled front edge to allow the blade to not sit against the handle when folded ( and so away from the soldat's leg )

    Cheers, Dan
