This one has been on sale before,

Re: eBay: German intrest

Still doesn't mean it's a fake, more likely a duplicate. As I've said before, given the thousands of photos he's sold over the years obtained from former Luftwaffe personnel I just think it would be foolish for him to sully his reputation in this way.

BTW, I don't particularly know him but have bought the odd photo from him.

Fully agree. I bought a number of photos from Michael Meyer, none of them was fake. It is just that for every photo sold on eBay as an original, there was an untold number of duplicates made for the photographer's' comrades. Simple as that. Sold before on eBay or elsewhere therefore means nothing much really. These are mostly all duplicates of the originals.

It does mean a world of difference. I see many pictures that are sold again and again without notation of being a well known copy. It is like selling a car and "forget" to tell it had previous owners. Most of them are contact prints and not original period copy's.

Mr Meyer apparently has a good name according to members here, so for me, that is good enough.

Contemporary duplicates, not copies or contact prints, developed at the same time as the original photos and distributed among the comrades. No difference there whatsoever.
