I have seen quit a few of these documents out there on auction. With so many of these being fakes how would you tell a original? I know the common sense things to look for but with reproductions being made to look so close to the originals how would someone tell? I sometimes read that the seller claims to have tested the document with a black light. But does this test work on old papers? thanks

One of the great things about these docs is that "everyone" got one. So many were awarded, and over quite a long period of time - until well into 1944. They are cheaper than EK2 docs, which were so often awarded by the end of the war, and most show the recipient's unit, which can sometimes be very interesting.

Here is my favorite - a member of a deactivation staff.
