    Hi Paul E, can I take it then that the matchbox holder posted by Glenn66 is a fake also? if not why not?.

    Thanks Brad.
    Glenns piece has more patina and wear to it and isn't the usual "SS Sexy thing" that the fakers like to peddle , it has far more chance of being correct than something that can easily be proved to be a fake and has just ben sexed up so someone will jump at it because it's " SS" !!

    As a newish collector I am happy to see the bogus stuff as well as the original items. I thought this is in part what this site was all about where folk post items to me discussed before purchase etc. Long standing members sometimes forget that new members haven't seen it all before and when an item is declared 'fake' a reason why it is wrong un is much appreciated. As I see it if this site is to keep attracting new members both old and young then it might be neseccary to go over the same old ground of explaning why time and time again. Saying that I think some of the fourth Reich stuff is so whacky that a child might see it's junk.

    Mark.
