Hello,

I found a Sand- Cast- Tine with a Relief of a Fallschirmjäger Soldier in a old Metal-Cast-Factory.

Thx
Manfred

They are quite common postwar reproduction items which have been around since the early 1980's.

Hello,

Something that is supposed to be, one postwar re-production from the 80er years? Really clear, with Hakenkreuz and so and that of course in a German factory, flung best still onto the market to the Fuehrergeburstag !!!! I believe then this company would be no 130 years become in an old way !!!

Manfred, that didn't translate so well, so I'm not quite sure what you're saying. The earliest of these reproduction decorators was of a higher quality casting. I think this generation here is a second generation casting, ie, made from a mold made from one of the first generation pieces. I've seen them often for sale at the souvenir desk at Treffens of the Bund Deutsche Fallschirmjäger (BDF) for around 20 DM. They were first produced, as I said, about 25 years ago.

Hello Chris,

the cast the you on the picture see, I poured of lead. It is not a question of the cast for me but around the sand mould. I created the cast around the details better to be able to recognize.
These sand moulds, it is a question of 2, are with 100 % garantie from the time past 1933- 1945.

Thx
Manfred

Manfred, I'm sorry but the molds, and anything which comes from them, are well-known postwar reproduction "fantasy pieces." It is accepted by 100 percent of all knowledgeable and advanced Fallschirmjäger collectors that these are postwar, dating to the late 1970's or early 1980's. None appeared before then.

It is possible the workers (in whatever factory you say you found the molds in) did a little "extra work" after hours to make some extra money on the side -- that is certainly true of the Meissen porcelain firm as well, where the workers have made thousands of fake Meissen porcelain objects "after hours."

The molds are postwar. No one in the hobby believes them, they have been known for decades as fakes, and this issue was settled by the collecting community years and years ago. End of story.
