    Default Fakes - Die stamp library

    Fake die stamps and what they look like. Some of these were photographed at militaria fairs in Europe. Guys, as you find these, please do add to it.

    Wow ...

    How the heck are we going to get new collectors into the hobby and particularly enjoying the collecting of K98k's, if they're going to be faced with having to be expert enough to sort out the real pieces with provenance from the garbage produced from stamps like this?

    Thank heaven for the folks writing *new* books and providing sites like this so the plain newbies (or sophomores like me) have some way of spending hard earned dollars on only legitimate pieces.

    As usual Hambone, thanks for the heads up ..... :tea:

    Are we going to have a separate humper forum here and are we going to be permitted to publish links to ongoing "questionable" auctions, so we can ensure fellow collectors don't get burnt?

    Regards,
    Doug

    Edit: NM about humper forum ... just saw this link ... http://www.k98kforum.com/showthread.php?322-Turd-alerts

    There was a large find of original E/135 stamps of all sizes found in the sewers under Mauser Oberndorf. There are plenty of these in German collections from what I gather- I know someone that has one, but his is rusty and can't be used for faking stuff. I'd say the guys that have them wouldn't use them either- the repros can be made exactly the same anyway.

    Default Die stamps

    There was a large lot of original Mauser Oberndorf WaA stamping tools found in the sewer in Oberndorf some years back and all these were original of course. The bulk of these are held privately and will not be circulated amongst the collecting community. Also, the construction of these reproduction stamps is not the same - ie. depth and angle of the die, etc.

    Given this though, we see increased use of these stamps and thankfully, to date - poor application.

    USED BUT IN GOOD CONDITION, PRODUCTION YEAR UNKNOWN, SUBCONTRACTOR CODE "N10" ON THE SIDE.

    SIZE OF THE STAMP IS ABOUT 2.5 x 5.5 mm

    PLEASE SEE PICTURES FOR CLOSE-UP DETAILS AND

    BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR BID.


    Look how he claims n10 is a Sub-contactor code on his Numerich stamp. Ive reported ebay that he is lying in his ad and sent them the website where he is buying them, but nothing has been done.
    He's been listing one after another for months now and has deleted his pictures of the side of the stamp where it says in big letters "GUN PARTS CORP" he obviously realized he can get triple the price of what he was getting before by leaving out that its a repro from Numerich and GunParts Corp is written clearly on the side.
    His first stamp sold for 70.00 when he put in his ad that its from GunPartsCorp and showed a pic of "GPC" written on the side. but every stamp after that has sold for 175.00+ up to 270.00 when he decided to leave out it is a repro and choze selective wording to absolve him from any cases that may be opened for not as described
