    A fantasy piece! Others also call this a piece of junk. Nothing you would want to add to your collection.

    It's a fantasy identity document, a recent invention coming out of Eastern Europe. A complete fake, made to deceive. You find all kinds, most of them from famous/infamous units, all with an overload of Nazi symbols.

    If you ever encounter a document of this type, don't touch it with a bargepole. It is a complete fabrication that never existed in the period. All servicemen carried a Soldbuch, which was of a standard design, seen below. Printing a document for a specific unit would have been as impractical as it would be idiotic.

    Any idea what this is?

    You see these al over flea markets in Poland, the traders have boxes under the counter with dozens in them.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Ahh, yes indeed. There are some really unscrupulous people out there. They seem to enjoy stripping TR (Third Reich) collectors of their dollars. Not that there aren't charlatans in all other areas of collecting. Please do a bit of research first and check in with us before making a significant purchase. Best wishes, Neil
