Wehrpass: Landesschützen - Faked APB Entry

Recommended Posts

Both the entry for the EK II and the Bandenkampfabzeichen are faked. The dates for both don't correspond as the soldier was serving with Landesschützen Ersatz units and the Feldpost Number on the stamp seen for the awards begins with 'L' which is for Luftwaffe. And the signature for the awards looks like a poor copy of one of the original signatures in the WP.

This was sold on the Militaria Fund Forum for just 30 Euros on the 14th September 2015. It is now (22nd September 2015) being listed on Militaria321 by the new owner for 120 Euros.

Hi Kevin,

 

Thank you for showing this dud.

The 30 Euro price and the images were clearly showing that it was a bad booklet.

 

The new owner is making it more worse by making quickly some extra money - with a booklet filled with bad entries, besides the EK.2 and APB, the entries on page 32 - with where he was active is faked from 1.9.1943 to 24.5.1944, to provide the man some activities in several countries to "earn" his "awards"

The entries on page 32 are done in a very childish handwriting (as for the awards), the stamp is a very bad fake, and the signature a strange scribble.

 

His description says it all :

Der Verkauf ist ohne Echtheitsgarantie auf die Eintragungen da die Meinungen auseinander gehen / The sale is without a guarantee of authenticity on the entries because the opinions do differ.

Umtausch ist ausgeschlossen / Exchange excluded.

 

That "the opinions do differ" - is of course nonsense and made up by the current seller baier67 from 08125 München / 09212 Limbach-Oberfrohna Germany.

Exchange excluded - is a safe card to get away with a bad deal.

 

So many clowns active on 321.

 

Best regards

 

Eric-Jan
