Default FSSF experts?

Hi Guys,

I have posted some FSSF items in my main 'Airborne Advice Sought' thread below.

Cheers,

You really need to photograph and post each item individually.
But I can tell you right now....
- the spearhead is fake
- the oval is fake
- the arrows and disc on the card stock are post-war
Everything else is suspect without more detail.

I agree with RoyA. Fake FSSF and ovals. The collars are post war. The lanyard, needs better images.

Thanks Gents,

Unfortunately these are not mine and I don't have possession of them to photograph. Just trying to help a mate out.

Cheers,

Roy
