There is a whole load of crap on that site, in particular this:-

http://ww2army.com/images/1000-1499/1337/1337.php

the S.S. referred to in the document / award is S.S. Klasse

however that means scharfschützen = sniper.

The way the SS runes are added on the award look very suspicious as well.

The award document literal translation reads:-

To Unter-officer Müller of the 6th Company of the Infantry Regiment Allenstein
has won in the shooting year of 1935 this award in recognition for competing in the s.s. (scharfschützen) class for rifle.

These award were never meant to be worn on a military uniform but were a prize in the military shooting competitions.


Again my advice is "Buy the item - NOT the sellers storys"

The armband looks fake to me. The armband seems to have been white but it is very evenly dirty. The patch is sown all around the edge and there are a few string hanging. Although the armband seems well used there are no rubbing points on the back and no remains or markings from a attachment method. And the stamp was made with super ink as it's as new, although theoretically 70 years old.

I didn't bother with the story as it's just a story with no hard evidence.

I need a bit of help from the bullet experts on the forum, i have these 4 exploded shells, and i'd like a bit of help with the markings on them, will write them down as best i was able to read them, and also put some pics, will try eventually to make pics during the day too.

dnt S* 1 1
auy S* 11 ?
auy S* 4 41
dnt S* 1 41

My guess is that these are 7.92 mm of german origin but i'd be very grateful if someone could confirm it


http://muggs.minus.com/mpOocZkZ6/

I managed to find the partial answer myself

S* manufacturer's mark for brass cartridge case (72% copper and 28% zinc)

auy Polte-Werk, Grueneberg
and dnt is probably dnf which stands for
dnf Rheinische-Westfaelische Sprengstoff AG, Stadeln plant near Nuernberg

41 must be the manufacture year

only the standalone 1 is still a mystery
