What is our collecting future with fakes? (BEFORE YOU BUY A SS RODO BUCKLE PLEASE READ THIS THREAD)

Article about: Going European ... What's going on with Military Advisor Magazine? - Militaria Forums

    I did not intend to further take part, but it is apparently needed. Decide yourself
    about the behavior of this mr. :

    Ben, after my comment (see post 38) and his answer nothing is visible anymore.
    Not even what you write as "awaiting moderation". So, it is simple: censorship!!
    The truth may not be told. This is obvious!

    I think it is time we end this discussion, as we all are spilling efforts and time.
    The collecting world is mucked up, TOTALLY!!

    Fully agree with you. Let's do no longer waste our time with the guignol. I still would suggest to keep this thread going back to the top once in a while so new comers seeking for info have a chance to read it. This is the internet power, OUR power. Let's use it the most we can to offset this stupid printed article!

    The article will be "bumped" up frequently, trust me

    The rotten dealer, whatever could be his name (Stahl, Royster or Penélope) is smart, but not "that smart". With his own replies we all saw he already provided at least two obvious mistakes showing to any reader he is a pathological liar. Please DO NOT point any of his mistakes since he will correct them. Always keep in mind he is reading what is posted here and in the WAF and reacts at the speed of a cobra...So let him dig his own grave on his crappy website.

    In the future, due to new collector entitlement attitude and the passing of the old guard, the fakes become real and the real will become fakes. That is why the business of this forum is so important to have a written legacy of what is what.

    I have give my last comment on that rubbish, hopefully he will post what I have written and hopefully whoever reads it heed any warnings

    "Well this will be my last post here so hopefully the author will allow this to be posted. Please if anyone reads this article please do your homework prior to buying any thebuckles that the gentleman has featured. The V chst fake is a common fake amongst SS buckles. They appear with the RODO maker mark, Assmann, O&C, does not matter, same box, different catch but none the less fake. Some of the top buckle collectors in the world have commented on this article, please read carefully. One mans claim to try and sell fake buckles for his own gain? Years of experience from seasoned collectors trying to tell the gent that the buckles are reproductions/fake. I also have to question the whoever runs this, he needs to have a think about who he gets to post articles as what is posted here is totally incorrect whatever Mr Royster says. Have a good day to you all"

    I was right, he would not post what I had written, might have cost him a sale, this is the email he sent to me!!!

    "I am not going to post your last sending on my site because the material contained in it is entirely erroneous.
    The RODO buckles Dr. Thayer showed are entirely genuine.
    If you are unaware of this, you have no business portraying yourself as an expert.
    But considering the total lack of knowledge seen on your forum and the WAF, you no doubt would pass muster as a specialist.
    I do not mean that as any kind of a complement because the leadership and members of these sites are little better than small children with no education, delusions of grandeur and large, moving mouths.
    I have an original RODO buckle in my collection that I have had for decades and I know of at least ten others that are identical and have been in legitimate collections for 20-40 years.
    Yet you and others cry they are fake.
    This is because you know they are not but the ones you have are indeed fake and I will go to a bit of trouble to prove it.
    Nice illustrations will be supplied to add zest to the dialogs.
    After that happens, just try to sell them.
    Pascal said that to destroy a man, make a fool out of him.
    In this case I am unable to do so because God has obviously beaten me to it.

    The bloke is just a con man and I hope the attention he has had will make people think twice before buying his crap

    Got a mail about the subject from my friend Roger Bender.
    I am considering to let you know about his thoughts and
    what I will inform you about, as letters and mails I consider
    to be private and confidential. Largely it is up to Thayer now!

    Got a mail about the subject from my friend Roger Bender.
    . Largely it is up to Thayer now!
    It shows that unfortunately there was absolutely no change to expect. Between May 19, 2016 and today his position remained totally unchanged. If he is not even listening to friends or respected authors / persons like Mr.Saris what can we expect from this side? But, Thank You Mr.Saris to have tried your best as well!

    If I had hope to begin with, I am now convinced Thayer will NOT do anything to change his article. This is an extract of his own reply to my mail send to him May 13. This reply was on May 15:
    " While I may not fully understand what you are arguing, I am always open to proofs not available to me when the article was written. I have taken the liberty of copying this message to Roger Bender as well so that he will be aware of your opinions. If you have information to add (or to refute), the MA will certainly consider your submission. "

    Then, on May 1, this is an extract of what he send me:

    "To establish your credibility, I ask that you answer three simple questions:

    1. What is the time period when these "fake" RODO buckles were first manufactured?
    2. What is the name and address of the Hungarian metal-working firm making these buckles?
    3. Who is distributing these buckles and where can one purchase an example for comparison?

    Your answers will go a long way to advancing the research. "

    Of course each correspondence has been CC to Royster who, in turn, is using ANY input to turn it to his advantage. This is obvious if one pays attention in his various replies to comments.

    So, once again, do not believe to receive ANY help from Thayer either. In my opinion, only the net could minimize the impact of such misinformation since our voices are free when those people are commercially oriented. Not everybody is stupid or blind.

    I stick to my opinion:
    it is Thayer who should take action, as he was responsible for the article. Not Bender!!
    I will not note what Bender precisely said in his mail. For what reason should I. For me
    the subject is closed. There is for me no further need to take part with this discussion.
    Future will tell us what will happen.............
