    ok, both T-26 and 7tp were developed from the British Vickers Armstrong 6-ton tank. Poles bought the licence, while Soviets didn't.

    Do we need a sticky on authenticating photos now? Personally I think its a great photo except for being a knocked out Polish tank.

    Meyle77, are you able to take a loupe and make out the insignia and type of that car? What about its license plate? Also I can see some soldiers(?) behind the tank on the road - are they German?

    Any identifying info on the back of the photo?

    Perhaps we do. My warning stands, as there are indeed some unscrupulous
    sellers on ebay selling copies/reprints of WWII era photos - right down
    to the paper manufacturers logos printed on the back.

    However, I too think it is a great photograph.........

    ... and especially serrated edges. The ones I have come across are supposedly from former Ukrainian, Soviet or East German archives or museum collections.

    The issue with discussing what to look out for in fake photos is that it only makes the fakes get better and harder to spot.

    Genuine period photo prints should when looked at an oblique angle to the light show a 'metallic sheen' in the shadow areas as the papers used silver halides in the process. But one can still buy traditional photo film and bromide paper... but not sure if in the same sizes and serrated edges that most 1940's photo prints were made in? When I have purchased photos that still have glue and album paper attached I just soak the prints in warm water for a few hours and this gets rid of it ... assuming old fashioned water based adhesive of the period was used, I then dry them on an old print dryer I have.

    I collect, therefore I am.
