Hello

Here are two models of Lufwaffe M1937 made one made by Carl Julius Krebs, the second by Paul Weyserberg.
one is plain the other a little fancy.
Thanks for looking
Best regards

Hello OWN, your KREBS seems to be an original pre 45 one (although the pics do not show enough details) and the WEYERSBERG obviously (also no details) might have a fake etched blade. As you see, although I discussed and understand your aim, the interest in the forum´s members in collecting OBVIOUSLY faked or partially faked items is VERY limited. Up to now you did show us a real mass of as said fked or partilly faked items and I start to wonder what these did cost. They might have been cheaper than period items but -I assume- they did not come for nothing. Am I right? So the serious question is, if you still buy those anomalies, if you should not spend for less items but for original, period manufactured ones which represent historical AND money´s worth. So how did you come to these items and are you still buying them? I don´t want to criticyze your collecting(!) but I want to try to show options for a perhaps more fulfilling kind of collecting.
Are there any reasons you do not collect true and unalteed/faked items? I do know several colectors in your homeland who do have considerable collections of period manufactured, original items.
Regards,


wotan, gd.c-b#105

Hello wotan
Thank's a lot for your time writing an answer.
As I already wrote I was born in the 40's and my future in collecting is relatively short,
I began to collect, not only, edged weapons, when I was young.
At this time no others kind of knowledge than literature was available; now or so, you can access at more knowledge with internet, I found this web site recently.
as I was active on others kind of interest.
i throw this items our of drawers to show some, but I do not know what is fake or not.
It is not innocent, from me to take a NPEA helmet as an avatar...i saw a lot of people that show items and the expert say that are fakes, so I am not alone.
I will post one or two others items, and we 'll see.
You said that you know several collectors from my homeland, fine, I know nobody on this kind of interest.
Best regards
