Real or Fake, large collection I just purchased...

Article about: by infantry177 I am most interested in SS/totenkopf type things so I think I shall start their. Maybe work my way up to getting an "honor ring" one day! SS items are the most faked

    Agreed - I'm with Stewy - not one is a genuine piece. I was thinking the
    WWI wound badge may have been the best of the lot as these
    are reasonably common, but it is also bad.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    The only reason I thought it might be legit is the certificate of closure, I will try to find someone around base with a scanner. My buddies wife has a nice camera I will ask her to take individual photos... also included were some documents and ID so those items made me feel comfortable but then again they can be faked too...



    Award documents:






    This is very troubling to me if indeed all fake...

    The three L/W Panzer awards are fantasy IMO. If & that's a big "if" they were ever instituted they were so late in the war ,there's no way a 25,50 or 75 would be real. ASA "25" is based on an ordinary GWL ASA. I could continue,but there's not much point. It would take too long. You say they come from Poland? No suprise there then. Sorry for the bad news,maybe you can get a refund. Stewy

    Fake docs too! Man you have been shafted! Even better pics/scans won't help. Get your money back A.S.A.P! Stewy

    Sorry mate , from the docs you have shown they all look to be fakes and not very good ones , the badges you have shown with the docs contain some high end pieces that are fakes also , either that or fantasy items !!

    If you want to popst some of the docs individually i'll tell you why they are fakes but as Stewy says you need to get your money back , if these things were real you would have paid thousands of dollars out , i hope you haven't !!

    At this point I see no need... everyone here has so much knowledge and time invested in learning this hobby that such unified condemnation must mean they are indeed fake and thus I am out a very large sum of monies... refund without legal action would be near impossible and I honestly do not have the money for an international lawsuit. Im headed back to Afghanistan in August I will just have to save my money while deployed and recouperate financially... thank you all for your time and expertise in this matter.
