    Default SS-Wachbataillon Prag" promotion document

    Guys

    I love collecting SS paper work but I am still far from recognising original from fake stamps.



    Please can you check if all appears genuine on this document:

    SS soldier who served in "SS-Wachbataillon Prag".
    Ink signature of SS-Obersturmbannführer Michael Kneißl (SS-Nr.24 990, geb. 30.11.91)


    Many thanks in anticipation!

    to me, too, but you have to be very skeptical with these, in fact.

ID:	780867Here is something of mine of which I am quite confident in both cases, but it is not really identical to your item.
    damit, basta.

    The one item is an RZM receipt, itself pretty rare. You will notice the quality of the handwriting.

    The second is a travel orders I found in a black SS officer's overcoat.

    The stamps in the latter look good to me.

    However, when the question turns to Waffen SS combat personalities and such, the incidence of fakes in paper work, awards, promotions, etc is high.
    Or, things are stolen items from the Berlin Document Center.
    damit, basta.

ID:	780916One criterion with these is the handwriting. The fakers of today are lousy at proper penmanship, while the latter in the era was a central aspect of education, status, etc.
