    Default What do I have here???

    Got this today, thrown in for free as part of a swap....

    Looks a bit dodgy to me, the photo is one cut out of a photo album, and the dot printing on the Hakenkruez seems non period,

    Then again I could be wrong, I dont collect paper items, but a few come my way at times!

    Any help would be apprecited

    But I wouldn't know what to look for!!!!! I know the pic is cut from a photo, it came off and there is writing on the back, place the crinkled edge, I would thought a passport type photo would be the norm on something like this

    It smells old, I have my polish grandfathers 1929 barbers license and it in similar condition and smells the same....but that doesn't mean much!!!!

    It would appear to be a card for a sports accident/injury insurance policy.

    Actually AMTG, it can be a good sign. These very distinctive aromas are not easily replicated, if at all. Old papers and books have several different smells. For example, paper derived from ground wood, characterised by the yellow/brown colouration over time, produces the smell of vanillin, a rather pleasant organic compound. This is quite common with old books, documents etc. The oxidation process, which also causes the paper to turn yellow, together with contamination from various microorganisms, results in those familiar old smells that add such rich character to old paper items.

    You're welcome AMTG, I believe that many people make the mistake when looking at a document that appears 'too new to be true', but they are out there. A lot can depend on the quality of the original paper. If the mill used chemicals to clean up the lignin, i.e. the stuff that helps trees to stand up, then the paper will have a finer, pale quality that stands the test of time better. It also helps if the item has been kept away from sunlight of course, as this stimulates the colouration process.
