    Most German stamps I have seen have the text running around the circumference of the roundel and eagle rather than across horizontal axis as depicted in the stamps on your documents...I don't collect them so it is just a personal and limited observation rather than a view based on collection expertise. I am sure more the knowledgable TR collectors will provide a definitive answer.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    I'd say they are fake. They don't look like how a stamp should and it doesn't appear that they have any reason to be on the pieces of paper to begin with so I'd say that they have been added to beef up the price for the unwary.

    Yhea, fake. Checked it up and the text is supposed to go around with the circle.

    I see no reason for "Waffen SS Berlin" to be stamped on the stationary of a Cloth-Processing business...This is regular paperwork tarted up with a bogus stamp, to fool those with no knowledge of German...
