    Default Soldbuch to an SS-Kanonier

    Hi guys,

    I put up a Craigslist ad a few days ago for local folks who are looking to get rid of militaria. So far I have recceived several calls. This guys on the other side of town called earlier and I went to meet him today. He had a variety of things that he apparently had put away for several years, and was trying to sell. He had a lot of fake junk, but this soldbuch intrigued me.

    I do not know if the thing is real or fake, but I would like some opinions on it. It has a nice foetid smell to it, but I don't know how easily that is replicated. He's not asking much for it, which is a little alarming, but I figured I would ask for opinions from people who are more knowledgeable than I.

    Thanks gentlemen!

    This book looks like an original to me

    with all the different handwriting styles, unless someone got a group of fakers together ( is the collective noun for that "swill"?? ) that could write old German script I think you are safe Mo!

    Looks alright to me, just make sure the entries make sence, fakers tend to just throw random units in and what not.

    So I have been doing some reading. I am thinking that it is original. See the date at the top right corner of the front page? It means that he died on March 23rd, 1945. I searched for his name and KIA date in the German war graves registry, and I found him:

    Nachname:

    Kasten


    Vorname:

    Otto


    Dienstgrad:

    Sturmmann


    Geburtsdatum:

    09.04.1909


    Geburtsort:

    Neuhof


    Todes-/Vermisstendatum:

    23.03.1945


    Todes-/Vermisstenort:

    Laz.

    Oh man... I don't think I have ever been as excited about a piece of militaria as I am about this.

    I am very glad that it has received your blessing! I liked the way it looked at first, but I'm sure you can relate to the feeling you get when you find one potentially good item amongst a pile of fakes...
