Re: Shoulder boards Aufklärer

We have discussed these types of fakes in the past extensively.
Here are some more made from the same fakers in different waffenfarbe.

Re: Shoulder boards Aufklärer

Most of the high end fakes are being pushed through the German market. Be very careful Thomas when you go to these military fairs. A German friend of mine saw a Pakistani guy with a hand bag full of these straps and he was trying to sell them to the vendors in a militaria fair in Germany.

Re: Shoulder boards Aufklärer

An old thread, but the straps are clear fakes. The material is original. But the construction is not consistant with originals and that underside tongue LW shirt material is consistantly used by the fakers.

Re: Shoulder boards Aufklärer

Yes, sadly the crooks who manufacture these straps and fob them off as genuine are getting much better, but as Tim mentioned the lighter LW fabric on the underside
of the tongue should alert collectors to start looking very closely at the other features.

If it's any consolation Thoms, I think many of us have been stung by accepting the word of some dealers and sellers about tropical straps being genuine.  I'll stick my hand up roll and mine have joined
a couple of other things in the lower drawer.

Regards Markus
