Just found more of these on ebay.de, they all have the same scratched out Swastika and the liners all look the same along with the same rivet size. So, a bunch of repros trying to be sold as originals...

The stamp is suspect. Like it was done recent..the paint around the numbers is missing,were they authentic they'd have been painted over..they were stamped first then painted not painted then stamped. You can see the paint is chipped around those numbers.
