In June 2016 Ebay seller 2695frank from Dusseldorf in Germany was selling this USMLM (US Mission in Germany during the cold war) plate.
This was made by le_petit_lutin_vert a few years ago and is a replica (see lower plate). It has now been doctored with distressed holes and is being sold as a genuine used plate. This makes it a fake plate.
One way to spot a le_petit_lutin_vert fake cold war mission plate is because he used the wrong digit 2 sticker on all his many fakes.
This is a trick designed to part collectors from their money by making scrap look like a genuine plate. There are many more fake cold war mission plates in collections than genuine ones. Genuine ones are very VERY VERY VERY rare.
