Real or fake Items? Desk Flag and Statue

Post by Fallout88 » 14 Feb 2019 02:57

Hi all, came across a couple German Items I'm interested I'm purchasing but don't want to be made a fool by buying fakes. Do you guys think they're the real deal? I really appreciate the help!

The flag is a cut down armband, don't know about the stand but isn't typical German IMO.

The statue appears to be a different material/metal and quality than the wreath, sword, swastika section which says fake to me... Should be the same. Personally I'd pass on these.

Maybe the original statue had a torch, and later was changed by a fake SA Sport badge
I would never pay $ 395.00 for this tricked piece
