    Hi guys,

    I have a question. Can anyone tell me what these pieces are worth? I am especially interested in the ID card and ribbon of the leibstandarte-ss man.

    Thank you.

    Greetings,

    Johan

    If any of it was real, it would be worth many 1000's. The RK with oaks and swords is a fake and I assume all the rest is as well.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Welcome....you are so much better off starting a new thread on each item in their category on the forum.....you will also need much clearer, if possible straight on photos of the EK, TK, armelband and as many clear close up photos of the ring as possible...
    Placing all the items in one thread as you have, might not get you a lot of answers as some of the more knowledgeable folks here stick to their own area of collecting and may not realise your thread is here

    I used my eyes! The oaks and swords are poorly cast with pitting whilst the RK is also badly made and not anywhere near the quality of an original.

    The TK and the honour ring are very well faked and the other tk ring looks bogus. The cufftitle looks wrong and the ID card is not a form I recognise.

    Hey, I could be wrong on all of it, it just my opinion.

    Indeed. The ID card featuring the divisional insigne is a very silly fake or, more precisely, a fantasy piece.

    As usual, the fakers didn't even get their spelling right ("geboten" instead of "gebeten"), nor the most basic facts: The divisional insigne (which has no business being on any ID document anyway) is of the design used from ca. mid-1943 onwards, even though the document claims to be from 1940 and the Leibstandarte - or any other division, for that matter - had no "32nd Company".

    The cufftitle is bad as well. This type of ribbed material was not used for period cufftitles.

    Hi Johan,

    Both rings are no good, I suggest you do a forum search where all will become clear. Please try posting photo's upright, it helps a lot, see the technical/design thread in the index. It's looking like you got burned bad....

    Regards, Ned.

    Probably also fakes. But can I have your opinion one more time?
