Default Post Any Repro/Fake (non-Janke) Labels

Gentleman:

I thought I had started a thread on repro/fake labels of (NON-Janke) wartime maker logos--I searched, and apparently I hadn't. So, this one is overdue--here is a Schellenberg fake:

This has to be the lamest attempt at a Lubstein logo:

And this will serve as my verdict on the A-SS black-piped white-top--Silver Muller logo:

This is on a repro SS visor, but I believe it was a wartime maker--a real label is in Vol. I, p. 233 of the Moran book:

This is the piping on the fake SS A.K.J. visor--bizarre to say the least:

That is one of the best repros I ever seen. The CW logo is a dead give away. The tag states it is waterproof. I had a Janke long ago with the same waterproof tag. This one is much nicer.

If it wasn't marked as a CW, and didn't have the spring tag, it would be much tougher to spot w/o a hands-on. The logo is an easy "tell", but it also lacks the typical CW "Erstklassig"-class characteristics--however, the outside is a stunner.

I want to say a Janke with a little "re-work".

Thanks for posting this, Carlo--and if any other WAF members see any other questionable visors on any non-English speaking forums, please post them here.
