If someone has a copy, hint hint.....
I am sure, at one point, I had read something about this s mark, but cannot for the life of me remember where. Probably doing research after acquiring one. Although, it could have been just someones speculation too. On another note, there was a forger that marked his ek2s with 666, and one who marked em ss buckles with his phone #, so ... at this point, I believe anything is possible, and "now ive seen it all" is a phrase that I do not use.
Maybe someday the technology will be available to just scan an item and boom bad da bing....real or fake. Maybe a small hand held carbon 14 unit that uses lasers to test minute samples of an item.
Or maybe the forum can make an app that instantly scans photos of the badges and runs them through a database....like face recognition programs.
Till then these s marked badges will be in the same category as the shroud of Turin and Oak island.
OR the damn things are just crappy fakes. Which, if you are a purist....you have to agree with.
I have the first two down pact, little sketchy on the third still.
I knew this was going to be an adventure as soon as I bought my badge from Bunker.
The day it arrived I noticed the lack of silvering and this big stupid S.
It lay dormant in my cabinet, pleasantly seated upon its plastic perch.
Then I saw Meyle's post.
That is when I knew I had to dig!
Luckily there was a guy who ripped his apart and set it on fire....love the Internet.
Are none of the manufacturing process' recorded in the archives, or did they burn along with the amber room?
Someone, somewhere has to have something....clutching at straws.
Till that one guy, with that one reference shows up, we are at the mercy of Joe and his jimmy Hendrix experience testing.
i believe in studying Ralph, but what if the books are wrong? Anarchy I say!
Searching for anything relating to, Anton Boos, 934 Stamm. Kp. Pz. Erz. Abt. 7, 3 Kompanie, Panzer-Regiment 2, 16th Panzer-Division (My father)
money to burn is a must in this field of collecting.
The reference books cost more than my college books did...........Ha!
If this was a big item, I would be vomiting at the moment.
Being such a fairly cheap item, I only feel slight discomfort in my bowels.
Nothing a new M1/101 will not cure, or a good bowl of bran flakes.
Sometimes I feel like Rod Serling wrote the story of my life, I am going to wish this badge into the field.
So Ralph, how Should I post this badge on eBay.......extremely rare S variant, comes with a free pack of SA cigarettes found in a Bulgarian basement. If only I was a scum bag, this would be the future.
I wonder what Joe will burn next?
Hope my Eva Braun maxi pads are legit.....insert period here.
This is payback for me laughing at the champagne decal guys.
