Kind of scarry when you can't trust one of the larger internet memorabilia collectors. I usually use his site as one part of a way to verifiy medals or other memorabilia I am looking at.
why would some-one staple (real or fake) items to an pilowcase/ piece of wood??? And if, why would you do it with... well.. a couple of hundred staples?
You hardly can see any item underneith al those staples..
What a freakin moron..
There ought to be courses with exams, and licenses issued to anyone who uses
a stapler and does this kind of thing to ANY historical item ! ! ! !
If these tabs etc. are bogus, it doesn't really matter then....................
That being said, not all who sell fakes are crooks like Charlie Snyder. Some just don't know any better, despite several decades in the business. Many have not kept up with the proliferation of better and better fakes over the years and even the finest dealers can't be experts in every area. Honest mistakes are made by even the best now and then.
Again, these particular tabs are fakes for sure. However, this pillow case is not that much more strange than other means I have seen vets having invented to display their real souvenirs. Keep in mind, what are valuable historical artifacts to us now, were worthless junk shortly after the war.
As it happens, the stapled tabs are from that very website.Have you ever taken a look at the complete crap for sale at "Snyder's Treasures?"
YES, thats him, I did not want to just throw out there his name, and website.
Hes really stupid.
was the price $999,99 ?
I think you have all the answers and advices on this thread already. All good advices expressed here.
Staples are a good way to make look junk as vet's bringback,imo
