    Arrow New collector of german Feldpost need some tips

    Hi! As the thread title says, I'm a new collector of German feldpost and i am looking for some advice.

    First of all, i bought a bunch of German feldpost and i want to know if there is any database on the internet where i can look up from what units these feldposts where sent from.

    Also, do you know any good website "stores" and "ebay" sites where i can buy German feldpost? I am also interested in English field post (American, British, Canadian etc) and Swedish fältpost. So if you know any sites where i can get these as well, please tell

    And, what is the value for a normal german feldpost? I heard someone say there was 30-40 billion German feldpost sent during the war! Why is it that the american field post is so insanly expensive? I was on ebay the other day and checked and tryed to bid, but every american field post from ww2 went for 100-200 dollars.

    Is there many fake's? Any advices on detecting fakes is appreciated!

    I have not had time to translate all my german feldpost. I bought about 30 feldposts, i will upload the letters translated when im done with it, if there is any intrest here from anyone to read them?

    Thanks!

    Like everything else, it's faked, especially is it is a desirable unit. There is a Feldpost book on the market, but the cost is very high (£100+) some of us have the CD, but it's very difficult to obtain.

    If you post the numbers, there are people that will help you out
    Price for a letter is approx £1 each.
    And the script takes some getting used to, lots of Germans cannot read it

    I would agree with John.

    I can help on Feldpost numbers. But don't ask for too many at once.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Feldpost letters are faked. As I Said, desirable units (like GD & SS) command more money so therefore they are faked

    And sometimes ordinary Feldpost items are beefed up with the addition of a fake official stamp so that an ordinary Heer Feldpost envelope is magically turned into one supposedly from a member of the SS. Have a look at this thread which is a perfect example of what we mean...

    If you do ask for the unit behind a FpNr try and include the approximate date of the item if you can. Some FpNr's have alot of units assigned to them through the course of the war.

    Some good advice as Hucks and others say unfortunately as prices have risen it has brought feldpost to the attention of the fakers who are now starting to churn out especially SS !!
