"Afrika" cuff title:fake?

Article about: Hi Steve. Of course these weren't uploaded by the forum's service but what seemed weird to me is that everyone except me and Dave could see the pics. And also they are not clickable.

    Default "Afrika" cuff title:fake?

    I have a chance to purchase a small collection. All of the items look real to me except the Afrika band. I have heard their are a few different variations, but I came up empty while searching for one similiar to this. I posted pics of the whole collection just so you get an idea of the quality of the rest of the items that he had. Is this a rare variation or just an odd copy?
    Thanks for any info!

    That is a mighty fine collection that might end up in your hands. Do you know if the magazines match the handguns?

    the double stamp luger does.... it's a 1914 dmw restamped 1920 before it was issued to police
    the p-38 is a bfw 43 ....both are numbers matching and in good shape.

    Agree, the Afrika cufftitle looks wrong, not a period original.

    I am not keen on it either. These were not authorised to be made in bullion wire versions.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yea.....thanks for the info. I was hoping I stumpled on a nice find. Everything else in his collection looked good except gor the band. I meant to post this pic instead of the 3rd one from the first post. You can see that it is a thick thread.

    Gents I suspect this is due to non use of the forums own uploading service, this thread is now useless ! and should now be deleted, as it serves no purpose, other taking up server space. Prost ! Steve,
