Fake tinnies: NSKOV 1935 and Gautag Stuttgart 1937
Hi Guys, these came into work with some other bad items.
At first glance, when seen in the bottom of a box buried with other things, they look "ok". But once you pick them up you can see all the pock marks and casting flaws and poorly fitted pins. These were clearly made by the same hand.
I thought I would show them as even these cheaper items are faked.
When I first started collecting tinnies were a safe bet, no one copied them, bar the rare 1929 rally badge and the like.

There is no end to what is faked these days. When I was a kid, the junk shops had pails full of tinnies at ten cents a piece or a dozen for a dollar.
