    I shall not expand on all the errors, as that is neither my duty nor my obligation in this context.

    Wow, that's a -creative- new low as far as Deceit is concerned...As a collector without in-depth knowledge of Foetid Woolens & Associated Regalia, I can see how this would fool many into parting with their money...Thank you for the "Heads Up", FB...
    cheers, Glenn

    The fakers do get creative, don't they?

    But as is so often the case when it comes to paper items of any kind, nothing more than a working knowledge of the German language and familiarity with the terminology would be enough to spot the fake here:

    The non-hyphenated spelling of "Totenkopf Stand." and "Waffen SS" and the "Oberstormführer" show that whoever wrote this was not a German speaker... And the collar patches are not a "Hoheitszeichen", either...

    (Let's not even get into the fact that an official RZM-issue Probe would not bear a company logo or, the other way around, a seller's price tag would not have an RZM wax seal attached to it. Also, as FB's price list excerpt has shown us, 11.30 RM would have been heavily overpriced for a pair of collar patches in the day...)

    I hope it is not inappropriate to point out these details, but these are really not secrets or specialized knowledge; I am just observing things that should be obvious.

    I did not go into the details for a reason, actually.

    There are many errors here, but I would ask that we not give a tutorial to the malignant persons.

    In many cases, not too much is obvious to the innocent and to the easily gulled, other than the lurid grin of the dead head and the morbid desire to own a piece of Eicke's regalia.

    I saw this junk, and since I recently saw a very large pile of fake SS uniforms, I was moved to respond--especially after I checked with David Delich.

    My thing is not to sound the tocsin each day about fakes, or to write breathy manifestos about the wretchedness of humankind because of fakes.

    Every once and a while, though, it bears pointing out that such things are present and cause pain like a sore on the posterior of humankind.

    Do learn German, and do learn the proper technical terms, and the chronology in which these terms were in use and where.....

    If you do so, you will not step into stinkers as frequently as the rest of us.
