    nice items - especially the stamp.
    most of the items are eastern european made - available at flea markets.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,

    Hehe, well it's not ebay, but a Norwegian website, I'd like to send a message to the seller/the website and tell him they are fakes, but I was not sure about which were good and bad, better to say "Those and those are fake" rather than "You're selling fakes"

    Show us photos of the back!

    We need to see the details of these fakes, and let us know if they are marked.

    Detailed images of the reverses may well help, but it is far better to study originals. For information's sake, the large round screwback that can be seen above, is a very common Polish made piece that can be found on almost anything. The ink stamp is the same as many other examples that have been well discussed here on the paper items forum, and the police adler badge is another replica piece that resembles the cartridge case insignia.

    Tiger88 makes a great point: Studying the originals is the way to go...get familiar with the materials used, the method of construction, dates & makers...This knowledge is invaluable and you'd be amazed at the "Alarm Bells" that go off instinctively in your head when you come across these attempts to rob you of your hard-earned cash...just my thoughts,
