    It's good to be paranoid these days in photo collecting! haha j/k. But honestly, my opinions judging by the photos provided:

    The SS photo is mocking an Agfa Brovira paper 6x9 photo that I compared to in my collection....but the cut is not exactly a correct match. Doesnt mean its bad.....and I personally think its probably okay.

    IMHO the truck photo is a "grey fake", which examples/details are shown earlier in this thread. There are a handful of "grey fake variants" out there, and this seems to one of them.

    The French POW pic looks okay, until I saw the bottom left, which looks like it was cut with scissors (uneven cut). It might be the way the scan/picture of the photo looks on the screen tho.

    Even tho the coastal one is lacking detail/contrast....I think its okay.

    However, the last one "4 army men" is a tough one without seeing in hand. I have a photo that has the same exact cut/edges as yours does...... and Ive never been comfortable with it. It doesnt glow....but something about it doesnt sit right with me.

    See the same cut on my photo Here:

    Thank you for evaluating them. When they get to me, I'll take more pictures of them to provide, that may prove more conclusive. I feel naive for not having checked them before buying, since I would have done with pretty much any other kind of Third Reich-related purchase. I'm hoping at least that the French POWs photo turns out to be good, that one I was particularly pleased with (and predictably, cost the most). On the plus side, the seller accepts returns, and appears to be honestly selling off his own collection.

    The ink stamp on the revers of the POW photo might be of the "Kampf im Westen" type of photo books, but I am not certain. These photos were made by a professional photographer and sold throughout the Third Reich.

    Sold to the press, I assume? Also, do you happen to know what the stamp actually stands for?

    'Military Police' came to mind for me too, but it was just a guess. I'm sure someone will know.
