Are the stitch markings suppose to be printed on the star like that for a guide line? Or is that another fake give away
Don't worry I only spent less then 100 on this star so that's not the problem , im just curious why it is wrong and want to look at it with another view , who was the maker of the stars ?
"im just curious why it is wrong"
I think I've already explained this.
"...As well as the "P"and "OST" patches the Berliner Fahnenfabrik Geitel & Co later produced the "Jewish star" for which Jews had to pay 10 pfennig each to buy them. Jews, six years and older, had to wear them on their clothing.
The contract for the manufacture of the "Jewish star" was awarded the Berlin Fahnenfabrik Geitel & Co on the basis that it was to be fulfilled within a few days. Nearly a million stars - printed on long rolls of fabric and packed in bales - were delivered on time and the order brought the company 30,000 Reichsmark, which following the normal business practice of the time "if paid within five days of delivery of order" a two percent discount was granted."
I collect, therefore I am.
Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.
There is alot of going back and forth on this star. What is the verdict? Real or Fake?
Looking to buy a Museum Quality, cased EK1. A stamped "7" would be awesome to find!
A day late like usual, but I'll throw in my three cents (a penny added in for inflation;-). Not only it's become well known that the fakery surrounding these items is rampant... but where is the wear on the star? Where is the wear? It looks brand new, hmmm... because it is?
And finally, that is NOT a "Jewish" Star of David, it's a NAZI Star of David (assuming we were not discussing a fake here) insignia that Jews were forced to wear.
I personally see a huge distinction there.
This is quite disturbing. I think their was no doubts left this star was a reproduction. Now it's for sale for $300?!? What's even worse is you said you paid less than a hundred. So you make two hundreds dollars off some uneducated collector and get to dump your reproduction??? Wow!
