Top Level Fake Photos? in Germany: Imperial: Rick (Research) Lundstrom Forum for Documentation and Photographs Posted March 13 Yes. This fakery has been going on for a while-the technique is common for US Civil War CDVs and has been since the 1970s. I was shown Confederate CDV fakes in 1975. Bartko Rehrer was the guy who bought the old paper and reprinted photos. i have an original of a freikorps chap with a dog -and three slightly fuzzy copies of the same picture. I think Dave Danner gave me one of them.
