Default The "infamous" SS-Liederbuch 3rd edition fake/reprint

Hi,

one year ago, i updated my study about the various editions of the SS-Liederbuch, and i discovered that a fake/reprint "fantasy" edition of the 3rd SS-RuSHA print existed.

Please note that all the first 5 editions of the SS-Leiderbuch were made by the SS-Rasse und Siedlungshauptamt and are all very similar.

You will find below some pictures to easily identify the fake/reprint.
The pictures of the original 3rd SS-RuSHA edition are courtesy of od43.com, the pictures of the fake/reprint are courtesy of Catawiki and WAF member Burkhard45.

1) The front and back covers of an original SS-RuSHA edition are made with black fabric on heavy cardboard. The fake/reprint is on light cardobard, with a plastic sleeve look.

Please note the different font used for "Liederbuch" (especially the "L").

2) Almost each page of the fake/reprint is having an NS eagle watermark that is totally fantasy, and is not present in any of the SS-Liederbuch edition ever made.
Notice the rune over the "3. Auflage".

3) The picture of Hitler on the fake/reprint is not the one in the official 3rd SS-RuSHA original edition.

4) The picture of Himmler on the fake/reprint is an old one made before the rank of Reichsführer-SS was even created...

5) An example of a reprinted illustration in the fake/reprint, vs. the original edition.

See You

Vince

Hi Vincent,

I have informed Marcel, the book auctioneer, and he removed the lot from the auction
