    Hi Everyone

    I have acquired what I believe to be a 'SS Numberplate' however I am not too sure, its not the usual shape, perhaps this was for a heavy truck or for something else

    I have been told it was found in Demyansk:





    What do you guys think, would be great if I could find something out about this?

    Many thanks

    Yes. But a fake one IMO. Letters should be black not white, but since the base colour is white and the letters are white... also it is unrealisticly beat up.

    Thanks for the reply I am not sure, I have seen another plate similar online and the holes match perfectly, it looks and even smells very old...

    Is there anymore views or input with this, I am not entirely convinced it's a fake, maybe it's not a number plate at all?

    Difficult to say what it is , but as pointed out if a reall SS number palte the letters should be black

    Really, metal "that smells really old"? I thought this distinction was relegated to cloth, leather, etc. But a license plate?

    I mean if it was kept in trunkful of antiques for a couple decades, it might be more believable, but... this doesn't look like it spent much time indoors, nevermind in a smelly old trunk.

    And yes, the wear is pure baloney... ask yourself, what would make a license plate look like this, unless it had been trampled by a scrapyard crane for a while... or just simply purposely and repeatedly beat with a ball peen hammer ;-)

    Any metal workers here?

    I mean, look at the edges? It looks like an ex Zildjian cymbal factory worker with a score to settle got a hold of it

    Some heavy used parts of my car are also smelling old and historical... I want to say that many metals (like iron or steel) are smelling "old" (I don't know exactly why), even if they are 5 years old. Just like my car.
    I believe this piece of metal was spieced up to look like a super rare SS item directly from the battlefield. Every SS license plate had black Sigrunen on it, so they would be (even a minimum) visuable if it's an original piece. The damage looks, like Larboard said, modern made and not like a 70 year old battle damage.

    Regards.
