Default Authentification of 'unsere Waffen SS' postcards

Dear collectors,
I got the advice from a kind fellow collector here that the 'fleshy' reverse of such postcards is a good way to check these cards. I do believe that such cards have the best chance to be regarded as original. If you look at reputed postcard dealers sites you can see loads of whitish cards of that series. Are they all fakes? Regarding the price paid it would be a huge rip off. Are there mailed reference ones to legit them, too? Does anyone have a clue to that question? Just for education. Thanks in advance for sharing your knowledge.

Hi,

the various "Unsere Waffen-SS" collections/prints that were done are rarely copied, and when you find copies of those postcards (or the dozen of "SS-Hauptamt" postcards), you can easily see that they are copies, due to the very bad printing.

99% of the time the "Unsere Waffen-SS" postcards available online are originals.

The "fleshy" colour of the cardboard used by EAS can easily be missed if the picture or the scan made by the seller are badly done.

If you have any doubt, you can contact me through PM.

See You

Vince
