    Ade, it really is just too bad things havent changed. I cant imagine a collecting world with no fakes, it sure would make things much more easy for collectors starting off and experienced dealers and buyers. there is such a range of items while collecting ww2 artifacts you cannot expect someone to know everything even the most experienced. Im very glad to have a broad range of knowlage on this site, it is extremely helpful. I live here in canada, where it is much easier to collect canadian ww2 "stuff" as the only ones who want canadian stuff is canadians hahaa wayyy less fakes.
    Thanks again,
    Beau

    Beau, isn't that the tab we already discussed and deemed a fake in the thread shown below?

    yes, it was said to have been fake in that post, thought I would get better photos to confirm its a fake for my friend and made a topic for it.
    thanks for pointing that out as many good comments were made as to why it was a fake in that post.
    thanks,
    Beau

    It looks as the fake tabs, as being manufactured on orders of Dutch and English dealers in
    the early to mid-1970's. Loads of such stuff of all types of ranks, as well as many forms of
    SS cufftitles were made then and sold quite cheap (a cufftitle did cost ten guilders then).

    The problem with the cufftitles is that the backing-material was original material, which was
    obtained by those dealers from some Wuppertal concerns. If I remember well the embroidery
    was done in Pakistan.
    This is long ago. I should have kept some of this fake material to show it. I think many would
    fall from their stool. The quality often was great! Many collectors were not even born yet when
    that material was made.....................!!
