    Ok, I know what it is, but is it a real one?

    It came in with a load of other stuff, and as always I have a niggle as to whether it's period or not.

    If it is any help to you, collars are not often faked. It looks fine, but I could not give you a 100% firm opinion on this, as it is outside my area.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Thanks Jerry, that's always nice to know. About everything you get now seems to be faked one way or another, I guess it won't be long before they start copying these. They are creeping up in value, as people desert 3rd Reich stuff to collect a more "safer" area

    Indeed john. Collars so far have in the main escaped the fakers, but it will increase, especially the more desirable examples. As you mention, some collars are quite pricey already and matching pairs can be compared to what they used to bring be up there, but still way short of what even the commonest and most mundane TR German item costs.
