    It seems that with the second Stock some of the carving has been done very recently as the lighter parts are very light and bright and show no age or wear which would normally be seen on a piece of wood that was carved 65-70 years ago , that said it could just be the photos you will be able to tell better in hand !! These items have been pretty much left alone in the past by the fakers but the source of them is a help in any assessment , what is the source of them ?

    regards

    Both sticks look to have been pimped IMHO, the first one looks old with a mixture of old and new carving, whilst the second looks to have all new carvings, though as Paul posted, it could be the lighting of the pics.
    Regards,

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    I agree Jerry unless it's the light, the first one has had some additions done to it especially the dates , Avanti and some of the Fallschirmjager carving !!

    It was inevitable....when the values of these Wolchow's began to climb, sure as peas are green, out come the fakers...
