    Default Cigarette case.....Estonian SS??

    Hello everyone,
    I've never had a cigarette case, and my theory is most of these especially SS were prob post war, but I took a chance anyway. As you can see, it's, Alpacca marked, in between to, "S's." The SS motto and Estonian symbol is on the front, does it have a shot? It appears the patina goes through the motto, and Estonian logo. Thanks in advance.

    Not one I'd want in my collection. A ton of these come out of eastern Europe on a daily basis, with all kinds of things engraved or glued onto them. They're usually found with fake WaffenAmt and RZM markings on the inside (which wouldn't exist on a private purchase item like a cigarette case anyway). I'd bet the scrubbed patch on the inside of this one is where those markings were removed by someone more 'in the know', either to raise the probability of selling their own fake or to pass their mistake on to someone else.

    Even if it is an original cigarette case, the etching is too poor for an engraver, and too good for an amateur. IMO of course.

    The engraving is over the scratches. That seals the deal for me.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    As the other guys have said, these are mass produced in Eastern Europe.

    Here are a couple of links that show more of these.
