Default Wire cutters on eBay?

Can someone do me a favor and search “German Short Shears” on eBay and tell me what these are? They look JUST LIKE WWII german short handle wire cutters but are priced a lot lower than expected. Are these post war? Polish maybe?

Post the link to the ones you are asking about. Less confusion.

The ones in the link you sent look ok but I can’t be sure.....the photos in the auction are rubbish.

Update: I just bought a pair, they look WWII if they are I just got a hell of a deal, if not, I paid a fair price for a pair of wire cutters that look WWII that I can use for re-enacting. Anyone else know for certain? Maybe East German?
