    Hello, first I would like to say thank you for all of your responses. When FB reviewed the Allgemeine cap, I knew right away he was right. He has been able through study, work, and factual evidence been able to determine weather or not an item in Genuine. On an other note regarding the Totenkopf insignia I had posted. So far, I have not found one piece of evidence that makes them fake, other than/ yes its fake. That's all I have seen and heard. I have read dozens and dozens of threads regarding that insignia and there is just nothing. I should say, there is one comment that was made and he said, they are deemed fake because we have no original copy to compare them to. I am not convinced they are fake, so far on this forum, I have found factual evidence in reference to anything you look at regarding weather its fake or real, but not these skulls. If there is some sort of good history or facts that make them bad, Please and I mean this with the most respect, Please enlighten me. I see no reason why the SS would put there mark in a circle on Uniforms, Mess tins, canteens, Belts, many types of leather items, other insignia, belt buckles, etc. For some reason these Beautiful Skulls, I might say that they have much more "looks " to them than allot of confirmed Originals. I am in no way putting down the opinions of the Great minds of this Forum so, Please don't get me wrong. This is just how I believe, until there is some factual knowledge to prove me wrong. Regarding the Star of David, The sham cant be fake. I really don't know how it could be. I have collected for many years, so I do have a little knowledge under my belt. I have seen Veterans collections have fake items in them before, as they have added items to there collection. But I don't think that is what happened here. If you do the research and look at the info he had written on the back of the sham, you will notice that these soldiers were in most cases only able to grab small mementos. As they were always on the run, that's why all of the insignia. The rarest items on the sham are the Camouflaged backed eagles, 1 SS and 2 Luftwaffe. very rare indeed. But that can be another story. other original star of David's I have seen are just like this one, if you could please, find factual information on how this piece is not original. finding another example on the internet, is not what I would call, proving something wrong. It just shows another example. Thank you to everyone and there responses.

    As regards the eagles on the "sham", which is aptly named under these circumstances I think, the Luftwaffe eagles all have the same elongated head and the elongated last tail feather which is not seen on originals and as to the camo backing on them and the SS, again they do not compare to originals. Perhaps you could spend some time searching threads in the Heer and Luftwaffe uniforms sections as many images of original cloth eagles can be found in that section. In this case, you need to find images of known originals that are the same as yours, which you will not be able to do and only then might your case that the "sham" is all original be proven. Sadly it is not and items like this with Vet provenance are a common fakers trick and unless you bought it directly from a gentleman in his 90's I would always treat such a story with a lot of caution and even then it is the items that need to be looked at and the old collectors saying, "buy the item not the story" seems very applicable in this case. I have similar US cloth (& British) souvenir items and I could easily staple a load of fake items to one of them and write a name on the back, age it and sell it as a period original put together by a Vet, but it would not be real and might not have anything period on it at all or as in your case a mixture of real and fake items.


    Whatever its just an opinion.
