    Thanks Marcus.
    I actually live just 20 minutes from Liverpool, but the cost does sound somewhat off putting which is why i guess no-one has bothered so far.

    Hi Ant,

    No mate it's a little more complex than that and costs fairly good money.

    There are several sources that do such testings to qualify paper related articles in Europe and North America for mostly insurance purposes be it private or museums.

    The other one vouched for is in Liverpool in this country.

    There are alot of pros and cons as paper didn't automatically change in state come 1945; like I say it's a complex testing and deliberation via data and all sorts.

    A year has flown by now, any more news on these packets. I'm so excited i bought one with & one without the LDO!
    How much would date testing actually cost? Could you just find a University student doing chemistry who could actually do it?
    Thanks, Ant.

    Hi Robert,


    Personally I woundn't worry about these, the Ldo ones - well, I'm confident we have an interesting anomaly here, seriously.

    It's not lightly I'd take this stance on such: it's one of those dubious ones; from a hoard an unknown EK maker etc etc I know.

    Have a read of this: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=112990

    - I'm still on the track of the 'Down Fall' ones, I have some info but still awaiting further.

    - Thomas and I still need to arrange a date to research together, but are in comm's via e mail.

    Both of us have had things crop up. well in my case 'pop' out soon

    Don't be put off by me Robert - I've got my reasons but they can all be countered - it's just when I put them all together I get a bad gut like reaction and I've had it since they first appeared out of the blue a year or so ago.

    Do some searching on this packet and you will have plenty of info to help you out.

    Marcus I believe likes them but may have doubt's re: LDO print (I might be wrong here) which is only on some packets.



    Regards ...

    Mmmmmmmm.

    I'm very much on record for not liking these and I think Marcus may be a bit doubtful on the 'LDO' bit.

    Hey Marcus - any new info on these packets mate?

    Regards ...

    I've acquired two of these Carl Forfter packets the last two months, one mint, and one recently 'used'. I'd like to post the last packet I purchased from Britain this last week, an LDO, for some comments. By browsing this thread I can see many similar traits in my last packet as the thread's.

    Please feel free to make comment.
