Horrifying to say the least in the modern times we live in.
Thankyou Friedrich for sharing this warning to the collectors of these sheisster individuals who capitalize on destroying history for personal gain.

The ones I do own are quite real.
There are several items of note here, but I will not divulge them.
The black SS caps of the earliest period are well made and such fakes are not easily whipped out.
If someone has more data on this issue, I would very much like to know.
I salute Wim Saris here as a pillar of our site and for his contribution to our passions.
These are not mine. I own ones like them, though.
Very interesting cap F-B. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. It certainly seems the industry of fakers are following the conversation here.
