THIS EPISODE: The TRUTH about SS Honor Rings part II. Proving conclusively that the SS Ehrenring was CAST, and not as has been claimed by many self-proclaimed experts, die-struck. In typical Sodcast fashion, we get to the bottom of how the genuine rings were produced, by examining a well-worn, genuine ring.

THIS EPISODE: The TRUTH about SS Honor Rings, and exactly how they were produced. What you will always find on originals and why. We start off this series by taking a detailed look at a cast fake ring. Understanding how the fake is made, and why it`s made the way it is. In Part II we do the same with a genuine Honor ring and get to the bottom of how they were made, from start to finish. Although there are countless books and videos on SS Honor Rings today, none of them have shed more light on exactly how the rings were made, and more importantly, why they were made this way. As usual, the mighty Micro Jo steps up to the place, in collaboration with another collector, and answers all these questions for you in classic “Sodcast Style”.
Enjoy!

THIS EPISODE: Exposing the FANTASY 1936 OLYMPIC Enamel Badge “Ich Rufe Die Jugend Der Welt” as a cast piece of modern-made crap. Although you can find this selling on many Third Reich dealers websites as genuine, it is not. Using only the single zoom (2D) inspection microscope, as well as the usual Swiss-Cape Town humor, and fancy moving graphics, of course!
DO NOT BUY THESE, THEY ARE WORTHLESS CAST PIECES OF RUBISH, and have nothing to do with Nazi Germany or the 1936 Olympics.

THIS EPISODE: The Demjanskshild, or Demjansk Shield. Final part III of a III-part series, exposing the cast fake zinc shield that has been in collectors’ literature for over 45 years as genuine, as is still touted as, and sold as genuine today.
An in-depth, microscopic analysis of the obverse only, exposes this item for what it is – a poorly cast fake item!

THIS EPISODE: A genuine 1944-produced die-cast German "General Assault Award". Examining what a period, correctly die-engraved and machine-cast Award looks like under the microscope. And having a few beers and giggles as we go, of course.

Why is this HJ Gausieger 1944 a fake?

THIS EPISODE: Going where the "go-to men" have all failed to go, into detail! Exposing the fake zinc HJ-Gausieger 1944 award for what it is. A modern, machine-milled cast fake.
Showing collectors (and dealers) why this fake, is, in fact, a fake.

Clearing up the supposed "Bacqueville" French-made NAZI Awards, and exposing them for what they are. Poorly cast post-war rubbish.
Although these awards feature in many post-war collectors’ books as genuine and have grand fables attached to them, they cannot be pre-1945 correctly produced items, and clearly originate from a forger’s workshop.

The microscopic analysis of medals, awards, and badges. Reverse engineering each item with the help of the microscope, as well as a thorough comprehension of how original items are made, and how forgeries are cast. Letting the items do the talking, ignoring everything that is either in print or claimed about them by Militaria dealers or collectors.

My research, these videos and work that goes into them is 100% community-sponsored.
Most of the items examined are sent in by collectors who are trying to help the collecting community; by once and for all getting the bottom of whether an item is genuine or not.
With my knowledge as a medal maker, as well as my knowledge as a forger of these items, coupled with the microscopes I use, it is easy to show collectors whether an item is a correctly manufactured period object, or if it is a post-war produced fake.
You can also support me keep this channel/these videos and my work alive by contributing through Paypal:

Without your contributions, this work is not possible. So, it is entirely up to the collecting community whether my research and these videos continue. Nobody works for free, and because these videos greatly benefit the community as a whole and save collectors tens upon tens of thousands of dollars, asking for a little support is only fair.
Warning: Most of the items examined are in some way connected to the Third Reich period in Germany.
