Going European ...
What's going on with Military Advisor Magazine? - Wehrmacht-Awards.com Militaria Forums
Please also read this thread on the WAF forum just done by J P Redeuilh, a man dedicated to the study of SS buckles also called a liar by Mr Royster

i see only high end bull shitt !
As said at the Wehrmacht Awards Forum I do not further intend to be involved in this discussion, but when I started reading the article in the Military Advisor,
my eyes were attracted to the text upon the box.
Seeing this it was for me enough! Whoever "faked" this has never seen the address of Dold stated in old periodicals. And so what and why would I believe of the rest?
One cannot expect mr. Bender has knowledge about all subjects, written in his magazine. Nor do have his editors and so they must rely upon what authors bring to
our attention, right or wrong!
"Wir sollen auch unser Leben für die Brüder lassen" (1.Joh.3.16):
zum Gedächtnis Wilhelm Schenk. Er starb fürs Vaterland am 13. Juni 1916
I have commented on the WAF as requested, I cannot honestly believe what I am reading!!!! Basic fake buckles very easy to spot!!
Apparently some have sold their souls to the Devil.
This reminds me a little of the Bob Evans book. That book did have a lot of nice buckles but mixed in were fakes and repainted buckles. It also had prices on some buckle that were outrageous. He came out with the book then sold his collection.
This is very serious.
That article is something we absolutely dont need. It also makes me think of the amount of copies of this article out there already, blending in with the other books which contains genuine information about genuine historical objects.
Thank you to OP for mentioning this.
