I did find a couple on EBAY they must be relaxing up on the SWAS symbol glad they didnt cost me much.
I see a lot of fakes, found one they had a sepia toned photo with the digital time stamp on the back......with the availability of good copy soldbuch and wherpasses, they are very east to fake
Hi Eric, nice original items.
You know, I have never bought one of these yet....
I am assuming they didn't see any front line service (possible exception with the Volksturm at the wars end). The old man in the second Wehrpass is listed as Landsturm IA and the definition of Landsturm I is 'trained, territorial, replacement reserves, aged over 45'.
The first WP man is listed as Ersatzreserve I which is 'untrained, not called up, under age 35'.

Thanks for the input guys.
Nice Original unaltered WP. Some of these get Messed around with Fake entries (Added) there normally easy to spot with shaky Signatures, Odd looking stamps Etc Etc. So its refreshing to see them as they are.
As to these Being Easily Faked. I disagree, Time and Effort spent in achieving something Believable would out way the Value for what is being shown on this thread. There are other areas of this Hobby which are more Profitable and less time consuming to the Fakers.
