    Siege of Budapest - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Looking into this item: a paper bag found within a supply-pack which was dropped at the "Buda" side of Budapest (parachuted), during the siege of the city at 1944-1945. (According to the seller)
    It has a sticker on it with good whishes from the Führer...

    Anyone seen anything like this before?

    Although I can't imagine anything else that could be easier to fake than something like this...
    I've seen original gift-parcels with similar labels, but I've never seen a bag like this before...
    did someone find a big stack?
    cheers,Glenn

    well, the only other info he has, that it "smells really old" - or how we say it here: "smells like WW2"

    it's not really an expensive item (8 EU), but I wanted some feedback from you guys...

    I realize, that this could be an easy fake, but I had no problems with this seller, so far.
