    Question German WWII PANZER Compass?

    Hi, as a newcomer to this forum, I think I should first present myself.
    I'm 16 years old, interested in WWII, specially german militaria since I was 15. Living in Portugal, I hope to participate in our very first WWII Reenact, using airsoft replicas. As you know, Portugal was one of the few European countries not directly affected by World War II, but the level of addiction to this theme is very big

    My first impression will be a SS-Unterscharfuhrer of the 12th SS- Hitlerjugend. Hopefully It will last for years... Still having lots of doubts but I hope this forum can answer them

    ________________________
    Now, going on to the subject:

    This compass has been bought in Eastern Europe by my brother-in-law's brother. Total cost= 7€. Even if it's a repro, it was bought for the price of rain . The salesman told him that it was from a Panzer.

    As I said, I would like to know if it is real, reproduction, or a fake piece never seen before.

    I think that's pretty much all the details I can cover. If you would like more pictures, I'll make sure to post them the next day.

    Thanks for helping!!!

    I never like seeing TR stuff attached to fairly common 'everday' pieces
    to jack up the price. Even though in this instance it was relatively
    cheap enough, IMO it is a fake.

    I agree with walkwolf. I saw the ornate soldier and Swatstika piece on the front and thought this is a no no. Maybe you can pry that off. I will be a nice compass. :P

    Hello,
    Unfortunatly i have to agree with other comments....a bad item...
    To the best of my knowledge, there was no specific compass for Panzertruppen.
    And Welcome to our forum...
    Thanks
