    Based on Ade's thread, the one may be a dud ! The 'R' and 'P'

    Now study the "R" and "P". See how the middle of each letter (the green part) is a different size? Most originals, but not all, will feature this size difference.

    Compare it to the repro shown below.

    The Afrikakorps is a tartan back fake.
