This is obviously a real compass, but do any of you know if it's an authentic German compass from WWII?

You should not get a "E" for East, but a "O" for "Ost". So this nazi compass is just a fake.

You can find many fake nazi compass, like that one https://forum.axishistory.com//viewtopi ... &p=1064117
