Brian Siddall has brought these auctions to my attention, because for various
reasons, he believes somebody is using online records to get info, then armed with
a supply of WWII blank dogtags and a dogtag machine, is faking these tags, aging
and damaging them, then selling them for big bucks on E Bay. Certain esoteric
factual/historic errors have caused Brian to conclude that the tags are fake.

Does anyone know who this seller is, in California?
He ended 2 auctions abruptly before they were completed.
One of those tags allegedly belonged to a 501st trooper who was
murdered after the battle at Graignes, on 12 June, 1944.
I think Lt Melvin M. Spruiell (377th PFAB/DSC) who was KIA at Carentan on
'Bloody Sunday' was the other tag that was removed from the auction
prematurely. Any insights on this auction or the seller should be posted
here, for the benefit of all who frequent this forum.
