It’s sad how many of these worthless pieces of garbage have permeated the WW2 memorabilia market over the years. Many are brought in from Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, etc. Some are frequently resold by US dealers on various auction sites.
You will see very elaborate work on these fakes featuring skulls, swastikas, planes, tanks, boats and German crosses. Many have equally elaborate “presentation cases” and claims that they were awarded to Nazi Officers during various campaigns; none of that is true.
Some of these were created in the 50’s to capitalize on the public’s lust for war trophies, and many more produced in recent years to take advantage of the online auction craze. If you want to buy this garbage simply because you think it’s cool, that’s your business; just don’t confuse it with genuine war memorabilia, and don’t resell it as such when you finally realize its worthless junk.
