New fake docs on the market

Recommended Posts

What's the obvious mistake to spot they're both repros, is it the units or something else? Paying 8 euros for one being sold as a copy is certainly worth it for the fakers.

Hi,

for the EK, other than that the blanks are for sale, this ugly typing and regimental stamp has been used for fakes of other docs for a few years now.

The terrible writing on the wound badge is the same illegible scrawl as was used on the fake colonial docs some years ago.

here is one with fake cross...

The writing is a bit untidy and reminds me of modern illegible German handwriting but they'd still fool me. Another minefield for someone who just wants a doc. to go with an iron cross.

Chris,

Sorry if I am being thick but are the blanks genuine remainders or are they fakes as well.
