        Don't worry. Mimosa Sunotyp is a sort of paper which was only produced before the war ended in 1945. Most of the Mimosa-Company factory in Dresden was heavily destroyed in 1945. After the war Mimosa founded a new factory in Kiel but did not produce photographic papers until 1957. But all these were produced with the mark Mimosa-Kiel.
        So remember - all Mimosa papers without Kiel are before 1945, all papers with the mark Mimosa-Kiel are after 1945.

        Kind regards

                This is period.
                These are typical "souvenir" photo series, distributed and sold to the public. There were quite a lot of them in the beginning of the campaigns. I have seen series of the french campaign as well as the russian campaign. The meaning was that soldiers who could not afford their own camera or were not able to take photographs for what reason so ever, could purchase photo series about the war.
                You see them only in the victorious early years. Later when the retreat and the lost battles began, nobody did photos series for the public anymore.
                This also means that these photos are not unique, they were produced in issues of a few hundred if not thousands.
                But as i said before - they are period originals.

                    Is this an original or fantasy item?

                    Hi everyone,
                    Just wondering if this item is genuine or just a fantasy or replica
                    Any opinion would be greatly appreciated.
                    Regards.

                      Hi there,

                      in my opinion, not.
                      That's a fantasy piece. Party cap eagle clued off center to an old secretary item.

                      Such pieces were not manufactured by any controlled firms which would fall under the regulations of the RZM. If such a piece would bear any Nazi symbols it would have been much more "representative" when used as a gift to someone.
                      My opinion.

                      Regards

                          That one looks good to me. No red flags.
                          You could check it with black-light, it shouldn't glow.
                          And You can check the ink of the writing on the back with a little cotton swab, just a little bit wet, not too much. When You wipe the tab over the inscription with almost no pressure - does it take the ink or not.
                          Ink that is 70 years old doesn't come off easily.

                          Kind regards
                          Robert

                              please note that many photos have labeled afterwards (after 1945)
