    I agree. Why would they engrave a cross with Swas in centre, sort of thing a modern day enthusiast would do IMO

    Far too fancy to be original. I also don't think any SS units were equipped with the Tiger in 1942.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I would also imagine if it was genuine it would have a more personal dedication and/or dates on it rather than just a year and 'SS'.

    The tank is well executed though, so whoever
    did the artwork is quite talented...........!

    That is a fakes made by Vasja - , he likes to destroy original items to engrave to them all kind of garbage. All of the items found with similar inscriptions and engravings got a familiar name- "Vasin foofel"

    The guy has talent. He was taught to engrave by an old timer. ( Makes him dangerous ) He uses the old style rocker arm engraving technique. You rarely see that anymore.
    To bad he doesn't creat modern engraving and enameling items. He would probably make a hell of a lot more money and not have to worry about getting his butt kicked by folks he has defrauded.

    He did not fraud someone, he just sells them as art
