    Another fine document. Thanks for sharing. Great clarity of Lazarett hospital. Very interesting to see if the hospital has remained a hospital to this day? Thanks for sharing. Best Regards, JustinG

    Gentlemen. A few of the posters here seem a bit upset that Klaus Butschek has recieved (numerous) bad reviews at the HJ forum. The reason(s) for this are simple. Firstly, YES, the folks at the HJ-Research forum really do, know what they are doing.(Or maybe a member here could point me to a thread on the HJ forum where wrong info is stated? or where it is clear that they dont know what they are doing?) Secondly, fact is fact, regardless of personal opinion. And the plain facts are, that fakes have been found on Butscheks site, more than once. There was the case of a Gold wound badge that was sold without a case, yet appeared WITH a case on his site later, with no mention that the case was not original to the badge. Then there was the more recent case, read about that at WAF, where a HJ uniform, that was bought of eBay with no effects, miraculously turns up in Butscheks hands with added insignia! There have been other incidents as well. Yes, i too have dealt with Butschek, and everything said about them/him here is true. Very nice to converse with, very efficient service, well packed, postage is also OK, prices have shot through the roof but that has nothing to do with a dealer’s reputation. BUT, the fact remains that Butschek DO list fakes, and they DO list humped up items. (Plural, not singular) So where does this leave us? Are we just to gang up on people like Haas, Snyder, Germania Intl..etc... And not say a word about Dealers who, the majority believe are "The best" ? If you want to stay fair, and really want to help people with this thread, then there should surely be no problem mentioning any name when it comes to exposing fakes. I will leave you with some food for thought. Do these "dealers" interact with collectors on the forums? Do they share their time and try and help? OR... do they simply use the forums for their own advertising & sales - financial gain-? Yes, i have heard it, seen it, and done it myself before. Dealer XYZ is such a nice chap, after he was alerted to a fake on his recent update, he "did the right thing" and removed it! Really? The right thing would be to interact with the community, find out why it is a fake, and find out how to not make beginners mistakes in the future. Getreu dem motto: Education über alles. (yes, i just made that up) That would be the right thing, not to just repeatedly threaten a forum because your name is mentioned in a bad light, brought on by your own actions for listing modern fakes as genuine.
