    Default Jewish Star armband and Dutch star

    These came in a recent collection. I can't imagine what use the armband would be and it appears artificially aged. But the star sewn to the section of wool looks period. I've never owned, or expected to own an authentic star so I ask your opinions. Thank you in advance.Jewish Star armband and Dutch starJewish Star armband and Dutch starJewish Star armband and Dutch starJewish Star armband and Dutch starJewish Star armband and Dutch star

    The armband is not convincing at all and is a modern reproduction/fake. The patch on the wool does look a little more convincing and if real it was probably cut from a wool coat but if one is fake I am always Cautiously optimistic.

    Both may be movie props .

    Hi, they are both sadly not original in my opinion, i have never seen any archive photographs or original items marked to any individual camp and the materials simply do not look right either. Leon.

    Thanks all, assumed as much on the armband but the other is pretty convincing, glad to know for sure!
    Does anyone have a pic of one of the Dutch stars to post for comparison?
    And I will find that book!!

    ....Anyone who sells fakes is a thief and no better than someone who robs your home or steals your wallet. But that said, I find it particularly offensive that Holocaust material is faked. Some things should be sacred even to the lowest of the crooks.

    Unfortunately, where money is concerned... nothing is sacred.

    I reckon most Holocaust related material is faked, you find it all over Polish flea markets.
