So, my cousin recently bought this cigarette case for 36$. At first glance i said nice, what a bargain, but after that i wanted to think a bit more about it. So, my concerns:
1- The RZ stamp is well faded; on the other side the eagle and svastika seems crisp, also traces of a waffenamt stamp
2- I've read that the items related to Sturbaons were treated with black paint/solution, also the badges, in order not to shine,
so this one seems that has traces of that
3- It comes from Poland..
4- The model of the case, on the facade, seems genuinely worn on the borders
5- i don't know what to think about the skull and the overall aging of the piece.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
